The posh cafe which located in 360 degree of a mall based in south surra, Kuwait. It was designed by the Kuwait architect Jassim Al-Sehab in 2009. This great design concept was concentrated to made the different atmosphere for a place which placed at the center of a main mall’s atrium. The oncoming for this project was to attract the mall visitors who visiting the cafe or just toke a simple walk around there, so this project called posh cafe was to be very special or unique hopefully be able to attract the visitor or the guest. Explicitly the kitchen was framed by the nice canopy decoration and a set of partition which allow visitor to saw it in any direction. That was the great idea to attract visitor. While the canopy itself was lifted by two walls which were transparent and each wall was compounded by two columns made from steel and two panel glasses with undone wooden pyramids which were made from a teak, the best quality in their class. The pyramids toke the three dimensional pattern, very nice!
The visual accessibility from both side of the cafe was added by the decoration of the two panel glasses, so the visitor can freely saw the situation around the cafe, it was very comfortable. The kitchen was surrounded by the white marble which polished thassos. It would be the beautiful cladding that had the height for about 100-140 centimeters. And to enhance the texture and scale of the partition, the triangular shaped was used to utilized itself. Moreover, to got the direct attention of visitor or customers for the cafe, a bright yellow color was the best choice to done it, brilliant! The yellow color also intended to identify the cafe itself from the others. A great color option of the cafe was the creative idea.
The bright yellow painting was placed underside the partition, even-thought it was placed there, it very eye-catching. It was because the bright itself. The choice of the partition color of the cafe is very nice, it was combining the white in the upper and the bright yellow in the lower-site. Furthermore the teak wooden decoration gave the classic and unique atmosphere for itself.
Above the canopy you can found the decoration writing of this cafe, it was wrote ‘POSH CAFE’ in black, the name of its cafe. It would be a nice and best place to had a lunch or dinner here. Just come and try it! Enjoy !
