To demonstrate the mission of the cafe, the design was focused on creating subdued and minimal interiors using wood, metal, and stone. These materials help to create spaces for intimate and communal dining experiences without taking away the focus from the delicious dishes the cafe serves.
Primarily, the interior is a mixture of industrial style and barn-like aesthetics. From using incandescent bulbs to metal chairs, and subway tiles, the interior reflects the hard work and dedication of the cafe in providing nourishment to their customers. The use of darkened wood for tables, granite stone for work countertops, and dark monochromatic colours create a comfortable dining experience that is reminiscent of a relaxing day in the countryside.
Efficiency, quality of the product, and overall cleanliness are the top priorities for designing the kitchen and service areas. The efficient flow between the kitchen, prep tables, and display counters is achieved by properly designating areas for specific tasks and uses. The service and storage areas are tucked in strategic places to help keep the produce and ingredients fresh and clean.
The overall design of Festal Cafe creates that impression that good, delicious, and healthy food is possible without sacrificing taste, quality, and presentation.
