When asked to create a cafe area in the showrooms of Off the Wall Creations and PM Lighting , Audrey Gaffney Associates had to put their thinking caps on! This area had to serve as a showroom to both businesses and also function as a café. Located in an industrial area of Belfast but housed within an old building, the beautiful exposed red brick just had to be maintained. Off The Wall Creations wanted to make sure that their vinyl and digital services were shown at its best, while PM Lighting requirements were to show as much lighting samples as possible but for the each fitting to be shown at its best.
Designs were chosen to allow vinyl to be fixed to the glass on the counter front, along the back wall and also for use on the floor including the toilet area. One image blended into another to zone off the seating areas. Contemporary design seating was chosen to offset the brick work. The cafe bar was designed to appear as if it was floating, with the use of light horizontal timber lats giving the ceiling the illusion of encapsulating the cafe.
A showcase café within a showroom; Unique, Exciting, Class!
