新作 | Kaizen咖啡厅，曼谷 / space+craft 首
Kaizen coffee co.被认为是曼谷最好的特色咖啡馆之一，它由年轻的咖啡师Arnun Wattanaporn创立，他对咖啡的热情深受澳洲咖啡文化的影响。在成功赢得广大咖啡爱好者的青睐之后，Kaizen近日在曼谷市中心的黄金地段Ekamai开设了一家新的门店。
Kaizen coffee co. is known as one of the best specialty coffee places in Bangkok, founded by a young barista, Arnun Wattanaporn whose passion is highly influenced by Australia’s vibrant coffee scene. After a widely successful reception from its coffee lovers, Kaizen has recently launched its new home in Ekamai, one of the prime locations in the heart of Bangkok.
Surrounded by multiple high-rise buildings in some of the most vibrant areas in Bangkok, the double space stand-alone establishment of 100 sq.m. was raised among them. Having the front façade decorated with high clear glass, the first architectural challenge was to make the interior design outstanding and attractive when viewed from the main street. An enormous round oak plate engraved with ‘K’ for Kaizen, supplemented with LED light, was then affixed on the back wall accordingly. This element can be easily observed from the main street and thus presents a very firm identity to the café.

Unlike the previously owned Kaizen branches, the café owner aims to enhance further essence of coziness rather than a typically modern and minimal café atmosphere. This new Kaizen will not serve only a variety of coffee and beverages, but also a wide range of scrumptious healthy meals freshly prepared and served daily during breakfast till dinner. This intention has changed Kaizen’s interior design concept in both style and functions.

The natural finish oak woods and dark grey bricks weเre opted as the main principle materials. The result is the harmonious combination and beautiful contrast of the structure at once. While the oak woods transmit a sense of coziness, the dark grey bricks bring about the sophistication to the interior space. The distinct brick pattern was installed at the counter bar and the first floor wall, adding the design details as well as the exceptional character to the space.

The furniture layout was designed as an open plan with a functional twist on both first and second floors. This was done to propose a variety of seating groups for the clients to have options of their preferred table depending on their desire whether they will have only coffee or meals.

Finally, the new look of Kaizen Coffee has become uniquely outstanding among various coffee places in town and completely changed the well accepted image of Kaizen, which is one of the best providers of quality coffee as well as healthy meals in the capital city of Thailand.
