Modern Cafe Design By Hewitt Studios


Need a new place to hang out with friends or just want to enjoy a coffee? Then I have a nice place for you. Here it is, a modern cafe design which called the Straw Bale Cafe. This cafe lounge is located in Holme Lacy, Herefordshire, UK. It’s look so modern and comfortable. Then why you do not give it a rest? Check the review below guys!

Recently, I have got the information that this interior modern design cafe was designed by Hewitt Studios LLP. Like I have said before, this cafe is located in Holme Lacy, Herefordshire, UK. The designer designed this cafe under the client of Herefordshire College of Technology. Completed in 2010, this spent for about £180,000, wow!

Enough about the introduction, now let me review about the interior of this cafe. Based on the picture for the refurbished kitchen a cafe terrace, this cafe project comprises an extended for about 100 sea cafe. I guess the architect have conceived this cafe as a learning aid in low-impact environmental design. It is featuring the prefabricated construction which is intended to minimize the disruptive on-site works; the building structure was prefabricated in a bear by barn. Then demountable; the building is designed to be dismantled at the end of 15 years and most components re-used / re-cycled, other features are energy efficient, on-site energy generation, and local material. That’s the features of the cafe under my review.

Talk about the method construction which is done by the architect, they chose to pre-fabricated the building structure. It is in order to avoid the need for the certain lengthy and disruptive on-site processes. Here, the Modcell load-bearing panel system is used. The panels are assembled in a ‘flying-factory’ in one of the College outbuildings by architecture students from Nottingham University and members of their practice.

Feel curious about the materials which are used? The choice of materials has sought to make the most of the College’s natural resources. The 60 organic straw bales used to insulate the building come from the College’s own farm. The western red cedar cladding and decking was forested from the college’s 150 acres of woodland. This was cut to size on-site, by College contractors, just a few hundred yards from the building. The green cladding was planted by College students with learning difficulties, using indigenous varieties sourced from local nurseries.

Well, that’s all that i have got, hopefully it is enough for you. Have a nice day guys!
