Blue Bottle Coffee, One Paseo

at 3725 Paseo Place, San Diego 92130

For this café, we looked to bring a sense of personal scale into a voluminous space. We designed a softly curving canopy, a prominent feature above the service bar, to draw you in, while rounded millwork quietly guides you through the space. Inspired by Alvar Aalto’s design for a screen, the millwork surfaces are composed of vertically-aligned birch wood strips, allowing the material to be set in straight or fluid lines.
