Perkins&Will selected glass, stainless steel, and pale woods to pull together this creative hub and meeting space, the Nemesis coffee shop pavilion.
The Perkins&Will interiors team created an unusual geometric feature element on the ceiling. Starting with a central oculus, fins of white fabric stretch outward toward the perimeter. LED strips spill warm illumination through the fins, which are made from a textile used for diffusing light on film sets. Accentuating the calming ambiance of the space.
A continuous glass divider modulates from clear (for display cases) to reflective (concealing restrooms). “It reveals exactly what should be revealed,” Perkins&Will senior associate Rufina Wu says, “and hides the rest.”
Glass In Action
In between all the swooshes is a highly functional eatery. A stainless-steel bar slices through the middle of the plan, dividing the seating from the kitchen and service areas.
