Original Coffee, Nordre Frihavnsgade
Located in Østerbro, this Original Coffee renovation by Space Between sought to expand the venue across to the next-door space, whilst retaining the café’s cosy feeling. Østerbro represents one of Original Coffee’s first cafés and one of its busiest venues in Copenhagen. The building has a rich history, and the new design echoes its past as a grocery store. Original Coffee’s intention with the renovation was to return the space to its original size and carry forward the bustling community spirit.
Space Between’s approach to the project was to impart an atmosphere of intimacy and comfort, whilst delivering a clean, simple and durable design. Wood paneling across walls painted in a muted olive green is reminiscent of the location’s history. Polished concrete floors, natural oak furniture, anodized aluminium and Corian stone combine for a modern expression. The oak brings tactile warmth while the subtly reflective aluminium and stone play with the light.
Space Between designed custom elements for the space including the high café table—which merges a natural oak base with a charcoal stone tops from Sicilian named Grigio Bilimi—oak bench seating and integrated shelving unit, café counter and kitchen. The chairs are by Takt and Menu; the ceiling lights and lamps are by Anker & Co and Westberg.
