TheeAe LTD was commissioned to design + build the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf in Grand Plaza, Mong Kok, Hong Kong as the second project. We were required to follow one of styles called ‘Lounge’ that CBTL has in their design standard types.
The mall of the shop has extremely low ceiling as it is 2.1 meter from floor to ceiling in public space. It is non-standard ceiling height as for international standard. However, this happens a lot for Hong Kong buildings especially for old ones. Our big challenge was how to make the inside of shop to be maximized in its usage to bring feeling of space not cramped like public corridor area.
We used again open ceiling to maximize the floor to ceiling height as well as to save the cost of the materials. Also related mechanical installation for Fan Coil Unit was to be located to the closet public ceiling location in a row to make it almost disappear from the open ceiling area.
The shop is more vibrant and young look with glossy burgundy finishes, metal columns and glass walls. Thus, we used natural wood sliced panel to bring warmness inside.Location: Grand Plaza, Mong Kok, Hong Kong
