This unbuilt cafe design conveys a sleek, space age modernity, navigating the spatial constraints of its enclosure with a monumental soffit composed of a series of curving, intersecting, organic forms.

The design owes a debt to Ronchamp, one of the architect Le Corbusier’s late masterpieces. The forms all converge on a hallway to the back-of-house areas, accentuated with colored lighting.  Custom wood tables in the customer area provide a warm, tactile counterpoint to the smooth plaster surfaces of the bar and surround.
