Award-winning interior design studio Hart Miller Design have completed a new destination coffee shop for the UK’s first speciality grade organic coffee roasters. Situated in the heart of Holborn, London, the shop is designed for social moments.
The design firm were approached to develop and evolve the Beanberry brand into a destination coffee shop; the result is a textured, welcoming space that connects customers with source, ethics and people.
The shop, located at 272 High Holborn, reflects Beanberry Coffee’s unique vision of quality and has been designed to encourage a feeling of connectivity with the barista, showcasing the art of brewing outstanding coffee; in tandem creating social moments with fellow customers through bespoke sofa-like banquette seating and an inviting communal table.
High Holborn presents a new opportunity and landmark expansion for Beanberry Coffee. Evolving the brand experience from their initial Kingston Upton Thames branch, expanding in to the central London market will position Beanberry Coffee as a speciality coffee drinkers destination and a showcase to wholesale customer.
As an expression of Beanberry’s focus on quality and organic sourcing – the space blends a palette of sustainable, natural materials. Rich and natural colours combine to present an honest and refined aesthetic that is soft and textured in feeling.
The richly stained, detailed oak bar is offset by the raw, textured exposed brick wall of the building. Gun metal detailing showcases coffee products whilst natural Oak continues through the furniture specification. Tactile cork stool tops, ‘Foresso’ and ‘Fenix’ table tops are all soft to touch and the centrepiece bar is complemented by elegant ‘globe pendant lights.
“We wanted to help cultivate human connection and give people a space to pause for a moment in the heart of our fast-paced capital city – whether that be for a meeting, a social catch up or simply to enjoy Beanberry’s speciality coffee experience. We’ve created a refined space that reflects the company’s ethos, whilst positioning them for continued business growth.” – Anna Hart, Director – Hart Miller Design
