Volos, Greece | 2016
“Piazza Espression” is a street café located in the center of Volos on the busiest corner.
We used traditional Italian coffee shops as the inspiration for our overall vision. We designed the arrangement of the café in line with Italian coffee culture, by situating the preparation area and sales counter together to appear as one large table. Opposite is a similar extended table, where the customers can sit and enjoy their coffee and snacks, giving a sense of togetherness. We designed this Italian couture style by combining different styles. We blended together rustic elements, such as wooden surfaces, with clear modern lines, industrial drywalls and marble surfaces.
We feel the result is a balanced relaxed atmosphere with unique features that highlight and attract customers to experience its distinctiveness.
