Café, Belfast

Root & Branch


Root & Branch’s second location is within the historic Ormeau Baths in Belfast. This building is now home to a communal work space and tech community. The brief for this space was to create something completely different to any other coffee shop design in Belfast. The space had to be functional as well as beautifully designed, working with the restrictions of a long and narrow space, we focused on a linear counter with casual seating opposite. The palette was to be built around two main elements: the flooring and counter-top. We wanted to include tones of green and pink and bring in natural elements such as stone and wood. A subtle neutral pink was chosen for the walls and ceiling, the poured terrazzo floor introduced deep terracotta and jade green and tied the colour palette together. The remainder of the design included clean minimal elements,  allowing the brand to add their own personality to the space.
