The design of the cafe Mirabilis, located in Heraklion Crete, GR, was a motive to create a space of contemporary design that fulfills the advanced demands of the owner, in combination with traditional symbols from the Cretan rural villages. Our office succeeded in the best possible way.
The main axis was the intention to merge the past with the contemporary present by pointing out the philosophy of the coffee culture in Greece as a mean of communication, socialization and a motive to relate with each other. The coffee culture drove our design.
The curved wall-library leaves space at the front for service and seating while it delineates the servant spaces in the back, thus creating open spaces for free movement.
