Cookie Stories first coffee project is born along with a new moment in the brand, with the renewal of its identity and a new space to serve customers.
The chosen location, located in Curitiba, was in precarious condition inherited from the former tenant, making it necessary to completely renovate the premises to meet the new use of the space, always with attention to the short term for the commercial work.
The concept of the project was to create a simple and welcoming atmosphere, able to welcome clients of the most varied profiles. The first intervention was the change in the entrance of the store, previously located next to the double height space, and now displaced for the simple height space. This simple change created a new relation between server area and served area and different perceptions to the user: when entering the focus is on the counter and its products, however when finding the hall the space expands as an invitation to stay.
The materiality of the space is made with a reduced palette of colors and materials, cool but balanced by the presence of wood in the tactile furniture and the coffee products. Also worthy of mention is the presence of a bookcase at the back of the hall, used to separate the flow from the bathroom and kitchen, located on the mezzanine, and also serving as support for decoration and product display. The living space of the hall create an informal dynamic, offering three options to the user - low tables, high tables and a grandstand. This creates an familiar atmosphere to the user, something like a large living room where everyone is welcome.
