Schemata Architects has designed a coffee shop within the basement of a former office block in Seoul, South Korea.
The interiors of the cafe were informed by materiality of Seoul's architecture, which the studio has completed with steel surfaces and red-brick fixtures.
The sparsely-decorated cafe is situated in Seoul's creative Seongsu neighbourhood, surrounded by craft coffee bars and organic eateries that occupy disused warehouses.
This project has been longlisted in the restaurant interior category of Dezeen Awards 2020.
