Seesaw Coffee by Nota
Seesaw Coffee has this beautiful natural environment interior design, located in a bookstore on the top level of the mall in Beijing, China. It is a recent project designed by Nota, an architectural design studio founded in Shanghai in 2014, offering unique values and life to each project with adaptive thinking.
The site is surrounded by interior landscape and a glass curtain wall facing the outdoor terrace, and it’s pre-defined by multiple stepped platforms accessible from one single path. In response to the context, the design features imagery of “Plank Path – Water Surface – Floating Hut – Ship Deck Garden” by making use of the existing floor height difference creating a sunken plaza. Bring natural elements inside to create a garden-themed interior is very trendy, especially using wood, stone, and concrete as the main building materials have become more and more popular. I wish we can see more and more interior designs alike in public, so there are more and more opportunities that we can catch our breath inside of the concrete jungles.
