Modiste designed and realised the new Bonanza Coffee Roasters
Flagship location in Berlin Kreuzberg
The new Bonanza roastery had to be much more than just a ‘production facility’ it had to represent the spirit of the company in many ways. From an extensive lists of requirements and wishes it became apparent a devision of the more than 300m2 ground floor was needed.
The main element of the design concept is clearly ‘the wall’ separating the production area from the public coffee area. The design has been a bit of a balancing act, we wanted something that would be both transparant and opaque, functional and aesthetic, subtle and yet strong. The end result is a ‘modernist’ grid system made out of solid Oak and glass. The grid houses some functional elements from the traditional ‘back bar’ such as dishwashers, boilers, water filters and so on, these we’re all neatly fitted within the repeating pattern of the grid. At the same time we wanted to make sure the customers standing in front of the wall would be able to see the production area as much as possible.
To us this symbolises the two-fold functionality of the space, where there’s at the same time high volume production and the personal enjoyment of a single brew.
