C.F Cafe has been designed by Dongqi Architects as an open market, with three bars for different types of beverages.
The studio created the open-market concept through creating three curved bar counters – one for bakery, one for coffee and the last for juice – to concentrate people in different areas and get them socialising with one another.
Stainless steel, terrazzo and exposed aggregate finish were selected as the key materials. The eye-catching bars follows the cafe's brand palette: grey and light pink. Overhead, three curved caps also made using the aggregate finish push into the ceiling, highlighting each area.
