Lift Coffee
London
2019
1/14
A new speciality coffee experience for Kensington, West London. Set in a four-storey building we designed an espresso and filter bar, offices and an apartment above. Inspired by the coffee-making process is a simple material palette of warm timber and concrete which offsets a shimmering feature staircase.

Each step, railing and balustrade has been dipped in potassium chromate, bringing life and effervescence into the space. It is the first example of this material used in an interior space in the UK.
