Gloria Jean's Coffees
Location: Bahria Enclave, Islamabad, Pakistan
1300 sft of space sits in an upcoming retail hub of a new housing society. “Gloria jeans” is a well-established coffee house. The task in hand was to remodel the interior. “Gloria jeans” is a social hub, people from different walks of life visit to grab a coffee at different hours of the day. Space was designed to serve people round the clock. Planning was very pragmatic in order to serve the functional operations of the establishment. The design consists of two spaces. Level 0 holds the bar, seating area, and toilet and level -1 is a seating area for smokers. Space is wrapped with a louvered wooden dado wall and exposed brick. Floor surfaces are in wooden and marble textures with brass inlays. The ceiling is exposed concrete with hanging brass round lights.
