Coffeebar/Private Office

California
JOLIET WW Coffeebar Final 9714

Architecture: Walker Warner Architects
Principal: Greg Warner
Senior Project Manager: Helen Tsang
Architectural Staff: Charles Gurrey
Interiors: NICOLEHOLLIS
Builder: Cody/Brock, Inc.
Photography: Laure Joliet

Coffeebar is a contemporary cafe set within what was once an outdated suburban office building in Menlo Park. Outside, the building is transformed through a simple palette of materials—steel, cypress, and glass. Elliptical wooden louvers shade oversized glass windows and doors to provide sun protection and soften natural light. Steel trim and blackened metal panels provide a sophisticated, industrial aesthetic to complement the interiors. Taking inspiration from Italian coffee bars, the interior features terrazzo countertops and walls. Bicycle themed elements pay homage to the biking culture of Silicon Valley, and a large, live-edged walnut table suitable for family-style seating, reinforces ideas of community. www.coffeebar.com
