Atelier Starzak Strebicki have recently completed Kahawa, a combined coffee house and bookshop in Poznan, Poland, that’s located within a former milk bar.
Greeting customers as they walk in, is a large service counter with floating shelves off to one side, and an open seating area on the other.
Light wood bar stools run alongside the windows that look out onto the street, while armchairs and low tables fill the open space.
At the end of the open space is the bookshop area, with stadium seating and bookshelves that line the walls. The stadium seating allows customers to peruse the books and overlook the coffee shop.
Located off the main open area of the coffee shop is an area for meetings or workshops. A large wooden table surrounded by chairs provides plenty of space for a small group of people who also want some privacy.
Windows from the main coffee shop and the meeting area allow a glimpse into where they roast and pack their coffee.
