Detailed analyses and scenario building exercises were conducted to assess the best way to organize the appliances, equipment, and ingredients for creating both savoury and sweet waffles. Spaces for food display are strategically located along the counter to provide customers with a visual guide to the different ways the waffles are served. The counter and work station are basically the focal point of the whole layout, and everything else flows around it. Additionally, the work station needs to be flexible and adaptable to different locations, which could influence the maximum number of customers the cafe can serve.
Drawn from different design languages, several schemes were developed to achieve the most suitable aesthetics and efficient workflow. This exploration concluded in combining craftsman style and colonial architecture as the primary visual identity for the cafe, as they harken to the waffles' historical background without being literal in its interpretation. Through this combination, the cafe exudes an atmosphere of calm luxury manifested by a monochromatic scheme, tall and inviting windows, and careful application of textures and patterns.
