Home Café by Penda

The architecture firm Penda has been commissioned by the Beijing-based property developer Hongkun to lay out a concept for its café brand Home Café with potential to spread it throughout China. The café chain will incorporate various concept versions to offer spaces to breathe in heavily polluted areas of China. Two debut locations opened its doors in Beijing and Tianjin. With air pollution being a major issue in Chinese cities, Penda decided to create a café for visitors to take a deep breath of clean air. The design has several distinguishing features:

    1. Steel bars are upcycled to become a main interior design feature.
    2. A modular grid system and its various fillings offer flexible reconfiguration for the café.
    3. The plants in the café offer visitors a space to breathe within a polluted city.
    4. 4.The growth of the plants will offer a varying appearance for returning costumers.

For more information about this project, please visit the website of Penda and click on "Home Café."
