State Coffee Co. Espresso Bar by Lab4 architects

Sitting adjacent to the Aegean Sea, a 90sq.m. espresso bar embodies the latest addition to renowned Greek coffee chain stores, State Coffee Co.

Lab4 architects drew inspiration from the New York espresso bars of 30’s. Emulating many navy style features, they intended to draw references to the lower Manhattan seaport neighborhoods where espresso habits flourished in the beginnings of the previous century.

Designed by Lab4 architects

Organizing the whole layout in a parallel direction to the seaside street, with orientation to an amazing view, the architects subdivided the space into three basic zones. The first one is the coffee production zone which accumulates all the auxiliary spaces, the second one is the interior take away zone while the third one is the semi-outdoor dine-in space with customers’ seating.
