Architect penda has been commissioned by the Beijing-based property developer Hongkun to lay out a concept for its café brand Home Café with potential to spread it throughout China. The café chain will incorporate various concept versions to offer spaces to breathe in heavily polluted areas of China. Two debut locations opened its doors in Beijing and Tianjin. With air pollution being a major issue in Chinese cities, Penda decided to create a café for visitors to take a deep breath of clean air.
The steel bars create a series of cubic frameworks, which can be combined to shelves of different sizes. This gives the owner freedom of reorganizing the grid or even reusing its parts for a different location.
