Situated on a prominent corner site in the bustling and vibrant Jericho area of Oxford, split levels and various floors divide the café into five connected but differentiated zones. There are comfy sofas, large sociable tables, and snug corners. We sourced up-cycled furniture, arranged for the re-upholstery of sofas, painted table legs and created comfortable window seats. The finishes are clean and crisp with splashes of bold colour in the upholstery to unite the design.
We paid particular attention to the lighting, which is carefully designed to help manage the mood and work with the zoning. The cafe is light and airy during the day, and more subdued and exciting at night.
Individual exciting elements include a sculptural back-lit wine palette wall, an illuminated stair well of wine bottles and a glass floor giving views down into the wine cellar. Not to be forgotten, the washrooms were carefully designed as a stylish contrast to the airy café upstairs.
