Proyect Details
Mocapan Santa Ana is the third project with our client. We create an aesthetic in continuity with the last ones and with a slicker approach to make it a bit more elegant as it was a smaller place. The space of the commercial center allows a unique configuration, it’s compact and funcional. The kitchen needs and the sales points were the challenge of this project where all the clients needs must be integrated in a small area taking in consideration all the tecnical limitations. Five diferent confortable atmosphere were integrated in a unique space. Outside two benches for chilling out next to the garden, inside in front of the bar, one spot to sit alone to wait someone or to have a break, in the corridor space there is one long bench who connect a couple of tables for duo conversations and at the back there are group tables next to the window and cube’s table built-in to have a more private meeting space. All the design aspects have been thought to match the identity and give a real feeling of warmness to the visitors.
  1. Funtionality and ergonomy design are the tools for commercial interior design.
  2. Distribution allows great views to the surrounding landscape.
  3. Brand shapes and colors define part of the experience in the coffee shop.
  4. The light distribution create different atmospheres.
