Original Coffee, Store Kongensgade
Located at 124 Store Kongensgade overlooking the historic Nyboder row houses. The café is housed in a light filled, 1800’s building with a classic façade, arched windows and high ceilings. The site-specific design celebrates the contrast of old and new through the use of clean contemporary lines and hand craftsmanship in a muted colour palette.
The 125sqm site includes a three-room café with multiple seating zones as well as a coffee lab—a dedicated space to host training and events. The inviting entrance is designed for easy transition with generous space, a bespoke communal table formed from oak and aluminum, and custom shelves with bench seating. To the right of the entry, the coffee bar caters for quick takeaway whilst providing the café with a strong visual identity through its materiality and custom design. The front of large bar and kitchen expresses clean geometry through a pattern of three-dimensional Mutina tiles, topped with a durable Corian counter. Custom oak cabinets and shelves provide efficient functionality for the staff. The open kitchen and bespoke, integrated shelving, seating and coat rack are evocative of a residential space where customers can feel at home. Large doors along the length of the wall can be opened to extend the café into the sunny street and views of Nyboder.
Each zone caters to unique behaviours: the combined shelf, seat and coat rack at the entrance is multifunctional and efficient, the small free-standing café tables suit solitary and intimate moments, whilst built-in seating maximizes space and large communal tables in two heights provide dynamic social settings.
