Buddy Buddy
by HOP Architects

Michael Cerrone

Buddy Buddy is a new cafe and atelier in Brussels, designed by HOP Architects.

The interior of Buddy Buddy is split up in a two-tone colour scheme. The back side, containing the counter and high seating areas, is made up of mixtures of special metallic-red and earth-tone colours. The front side is made up of warm white colours and contains low seating areas.

Both sides are separated from each other by a strict border going around the floor, walls and ceiling. Complemented with minimalist steel furniture, this two-tone design results in a Wes Anderson-style interior for fresh nut butters and specialty coffee.

This project has been longlisted in the small interior category of Dezeen Awards 2020.
