Vine & Grind, located at the main entrance to Westfield Liverpool, opened their first store at the end of 2016. The brief was to design a kiosk that had an Italian espresso feel that would sit well within its surroundings. Placed within a huge atrium space, we had the height to create the perfect overhead structure. The skeletal structure not only provided a framework to anchor the kiosk within the mall environment but also provide the perfect structure to hang foliage and attach signage.
Beautiful hand-made terracotta tiles were selected for the counter front, marble bench tops and Porters paint’s Palm Beach black was applied to timber paneling. All finishes were selected for their handmade qualities and to evoke a sense of Italian heritage. Worn brass over-sized laser cut signage help define the location of the kiosk and decorative wall lights add an element of authenticity.
An additional seating area connects to the main structure with vintage lights and leather upholstered stools to complete the look. “Using handmade materials was a must for this project as was the need to implement greenery to allow the kiosk to come to life within its surrounds,” says Alexandra Morris director of Morris Selvatico.
