Pop-Up Brass Coffee Kiosk Expands on Lustrous Workplace Lobby

This permanent kiosk is situated at the entrance of Tower Three within the collection of International Towers in Sydney. Designed in conjunction with the lobby space, the boutique-scale project was conceived to reflect the grandeur of the interior architecture and invite the public from the outside.

Drawing inspiration from the geometric grid on the base building’s facade, the design for the kiosk was inspired by a sense of simplicity of form. Featuring a lustrous brass frame, the sculptural installation imbues a sense of place and permanence through a refined interiors scheme expressed via the modern application of traditional materials. More akin to an art gallery than a corporate workplace environment, the effervescent structure has been positioned as a jewel within the lobby expanse, becoming a meeting place for the building’s tenants and their guests.

The Italian-style stand-up coffee bar is accompanied by an outdoor seating zone that comprises bespoke furniture to match the materiality of the kiosk. The clean, industrial lines of the structure, together with the metallic mesh siding, grey marble counter and matching outdoor furniture work together for a modern and minimalist outcome. The quality finishes of the kiosk not only reflect the Campos brand but provide a fitting environment for its high energy, fast-paced team of baristas to create theatre on display.

Acting as the southern bookend for the development, the Tower Three lobby celebrates the public realm and the building’s civic nature.

 

The kiosk responds to the formality of the base building architecture while presenting a stand-alone sculptural element within the lobby.

The reduced palette of brass and grey marble provides a strong sense of coordination, restrained glamour and quality.

The installation celebrates old-world craftsmanship with a contemporary form.
