Blue Bottle Coffee, Westfield Century City

at 10250 Santa Monica Blvd. 90067

We approached this café, located within an outdoor mall, as if it were part of a shopping street. We incorporated concrete blocks and wood framing, inspired by Japanese kiosk shops. A wooden structure with a built-in bench transforms the typical mall facade into one reminiscent of a neighborhood café, with a large window that frames the coffee-making process inside.
