A dynamic, colourful and intriguing environment was just what the Campus St. Jean cafe and student lounge needed. The use of angles and the interplay of colours and materials created an interesting twist on the standard cafe service line.

The character of the cafe is one that will allow for people of all ages, both students and nearby residents, to enjoy a freshly made meal or a cup of coffee and a good book.

The Form of the cafe had to complement the curved building components introduced by the architect.

The Function had to meet operational requirements of the food service provider, the customers and potential single person operator.

The Funk had to be appealing to the student customers, the evening event goers and the surrounding aesthetic.

A pass on all 3-Fs.

“A new age gentlemen’s grooming retreat”

The design for The Board Room was inspired by this corporate spa image of privacy, relaxation and sophistication. A rich blend of caramel and chocolate stains set the tone for total comfort. The space highlights special architectural elements with splashes of intense colours of ruby red and cobalt blue.

This space is unique in character with the use of organic glass vessel sinks, glass tile inserts in walls, and peek-a-boo vertical glazed slits. The use of different textures of glass, limestone, porcelain, perforated wood and steel creates an interesting style. Curved walls and frosted glass panels create a sense of privacy for all who desire to indulge in this spa retreat.
