Elephant Grounds Coffee on Star Street by James JJ Acuna of JJA, Hong Kong

August 31st, 2016 by retail design blog

Upon the unveiling of the brand new 1120 sq.ft space housing the Elephant Grounds Coffee flagship in Hong Kong’s chic Star Street Precinct, the project, a work by JJA / Bespoke Architecture, immediately transformed the character of its ownsite and surrounding neighbourhood, through the passive performance of the design’s warm timber-based materials with an emphasison spatial transparency through indoor-outdoor oriented planning.

The project’s corner site was an opportunity for the designers and client, to give importance to the all-day-cafe as it becomes a natural intersection for the area’s tenants and office workers’ daily activities. Elephant Ground’s success lies in its role as a social hinge point for various class and user groups, and the simple strategies to reflect a more open and welcoming environment allow for this relationship.
