Code Black Roastery by Zwei
For a Melbourne-based coffee roasting company, interior architecture studio Zwei converted two inner city warehouses into a sleek, industrial roastery and café.
The company behind the Code Black roastery, Cafenatics Operations, needed space for not just their roasting machine, but their administration. Zwei seperated the operations within the twin warehouses, keeping the public space in one area and the paperwork in another, but left the open aesthetic, allowing customers to see behind-the-scenes.
Playing off the Cafenatics logo, the warehouses have a dark, raw look, using black steel, OSB board and concrete, while yellow lights highlight the ceiling.
The result is both rough and industrial and finely polished - not unlike a good coffee.
