Inside Out (Cafe') by chenchi lin
2016 - 2017, Golden A' Interior Space and Exhibition Design Award Winner
The owner of this cafeʻ is a conscientious man. and the coffee he made is extremely good. By tasting the coffee he made, you can feel it is not just a cup of coffee, but with the feeling of his heart. So, we want to design a space can deliver the such feeling from inside to outside and to let people outside can feel the strength of coffee which is from the owner. Then, this project is to design an abstractive sense of inside-out.
The program of this project is a cafe', a coffee shop. we want to design something beyond the seeing, not only visual sense but also feeling and imagination, and then be fascinated. This project has a very small area but feels like quite bigger.
Design Challenges
The challenge during design phase was the abstractive thinking. People are use to feel the things by seeing concreted image. however, this project is trying to feel the sense by imagining.
Production Technology
The key concept of this case is to reverse interior to outer space, which is “inside out”. Using three elevations to define the area of the space first. Then, penetrating enclosure is to build the connection with surrounding urban society. Furthermore, by blurring the interior and outer boundary, and extend the material from inside to outside, to let the strength of inside deliver to outside. The depth of field is considered with visional design.
