October 10, 2019

StudioTEKA is dreaming up design options for Elevenses Pastry Café! Coming soon to Long Island City, this café, with its warm, cozy hues and organic textures, will welcome you to grab a bite of delicious pastry and a quick cup of coffee in a laid back and inviting setting. A low carbon footprint, locally sourced ingredients and sustainable materials are highly valued in this space. Take a look at StudioTEKA’s vision for the place and keep an eye out for more progress!

This rendering shows a concept with warm red brick, repurposed wooden beams and salvaged lumber transformed into a beautiful cafe counter. The painting on the wall is by an artist who is being commissioned to create a piece for the space.
This rendering shows the opposite side of the space, with gold and blue accents. The burnt umber, warm reds and golds are evocative of the fall, which is the high season for pastry. The beams and ceiling in this scheme are painted black, in order to contrast with the whitewashed brick on the walls. A built in custom glass display case is inset into the counter, putting the client’s delectable delicacies in full view!
This is another concept that uses a rich warm color on the walls which gives the place a comfortable and welcoming vibe.
Another concept, this time with a dark gray polished concrete floor, warm red brick, natural repurposed wooden beams at the ceiling, and warm white textured wallpaper along with natural greenery.
Here you see a burnt umber scheme with black beams, menu board and ceiling, acting to frame the space. Warm rust colored couches and easy chairs are grouped around antique white marble coffee tables to create a relaxed atmosphere where patrons can sit back and enjoy a cup of gourmet coffee and their favorite book!
