Liberation Coffee House
by ORA

Eric Staudenmaier

Liberation Coffee House is a 1,600 square foot café, shop and gallery located in the Los Angeles LGBT Center.
The space was conceived as a community living with a flexible retail space to host community events, artists and makers.

Inspired by the pride flag, the interior palette of red, orange, yellow references the spirit of the LGBTQ+ community as well as Los Angeles as a City. A series of overlapping shear fabric panels create a gradient of colour reminiscent of California’s specular sunsets. Wood accents and abundant planting neutralise the strong colours bringing the outdoors in.

This project has been longlisted in the restaurant and bar interior category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
