Bare Essentials: Blue Bottle South Park Paints a Picture of Refined Tranquility!

If you live in LA, San Francisco or even among the bright lights of New York City, then you definitely are no stranger to coffee from Blue Bottle. Turning an old Kohler warehouse into a fabulous new café for Blue Bottle in South Park, San Francisco, Bohlin Cywinski Jackson found a way to combine the coffee giants philosophy with industrial simplicity and plenty of modernity. The new café spread across 1200 square feet of space is easy to fall in love with as brick, exposed concrete and wood are fluently and fluidly brought together here. It is a world where simplicity is king!

Floating wooden boxes showcase coffee bags and serveware up for grabs!

The new interior of the space that was once a warehouse is minimal with its original walls restore, enhanced and given a new lease of life. Anything unnecessary has been completely done away with and the space feels relaxing even as it embraces its past. The true highlight in here is a series of floating wooden boxes that hold the coffee bags and serveware which you can buy at the store. Dropping down from the ceiling, this series of open wooden boxes gives the café an identity of its own and sets it apart from the other Blue Bottle outlets.
