Kinfolk Café

Project  Kinfolk Café

Year  2015

Location Hsinchu

Kinfolk Café emanates unpretentious leisure by the northern European trait of white and bright. Lingering around this quiet corner and observing the beauty of this renewed building, all blossom like dawn. 

Kinfolk Café 以潔白、明亮的北歐風格展現樸實無華的悠閒自在,徜徉在這靜謐的角落,靜觀這融合於舊式公寓的底蘊,好似一道曙光-和煦綻放。

Keeping the mosaic as its original design, we still recognize the history of the building from the scars even it’s covered with white painting, and the vein lines of the wood board are set off the street corner.

Different views between inside and outside of Kinfolk Café are displayed through the French window. Rusty iron signboard shows the texture of coffee powder, and embeds a giant coffee bean which enhances the creation and handmade spirits.

保留老屋的原貌,即使刷白也能從斑駁的痕跡看出歷史,並以天然木紋招牌點綴於街角。大片落地櫥窗讓室內外有著不同的風景,繡鐵的招牌呈現出咖啡的原味,鑲上一顆畫龍點睛的咖啡豆,強調了原創及手作的精神。

The lower workstation presents the openness of the area intentionally. The mosaic tiles on the vertical wall are relative to the glazed ceramic tiles behind the lower counter, which increase the richness of the vision. Lights bring the mild color through the French window to light up the workstation, even the corner of the dining area could obtain aftertaste of the sunlight. 

吧檯刻意以低矮的空間差展現場域的開放性,以馬賽克磁磚拼接的立面,對比於牆面的釉磚增加了視覺的豐富感。光線為整體帶來溫潤的色澤,由整片採光點亮工作區域,即使於室內角落的用餐區也能換來日光的餘韻。

Taking the views: frame a view into a window creates an imaginary vision, and make the conception of “boring a hole on the wall” practices in order to get the lights.

Conveying messages: sweeping through the vintage writing table gives a new value that activates the antique into a housing decor and useful cupboard.

Renewing ideas: every corner of the shop, decorates carefully with different colors, irregular shape of tables and the various paintings which offer to exhibit generally are unique existences in the space.

取景:窗中窗,架構出室內景的虛幻,實踐鑿壁取光的概念。

傳承:寫字桌抹去灰塵後重新賦予新的價值,成為餐檯兼具收納及擺飾功能,讓古董也能活用。

新意:每個角落就像不同空間填上不一樣的色彩,隨時可以變換心情,讓不規則的桌子及供展覽的畫作都屬於特別的存在。
