Standard Studio plants greenery for a refreshing (re)treat amid bustling tourism
AMSTERDAM – With the success of its principal store just outside the city centre, The Cold Press Juicery opens to a fresh location within the quirky Nine Streets district. To depict its down-to-earth character, Build in Amsterdam conceptualised a brand identity founded in nature and Standard Studio interpreted the outline into a cutting-edge interior.
At the corner of Herengracht and Gasthuismolensteeg, the venue has an optimal view of Amsterdam’s canals and the distinctive canalhouses. Sitting amid a blend of local architecture, culture and history, The Cold Press Juicery takes a shot at bringing the city’s secret gardens to the fore. Numerous passersby haven’t got a clue that behind Amsterdam’s magnificent crooked houses hides tremendous indoor greenery (if you don’t believe it, Google can assist far-off investigators with a satellite view).
The 23-sq-m juice bar has living tree emerging from the floor right at its core, referring to the daily use of fresh ingredients for beverages while providing a tranquil domain a few steps away from the tumultuous pace of the city. To keep the tree as healthy as its customers, Standard Studio installed a prolific soil and watering system underfoot.
The identity’s diagonal lines are interpreted into a graphic with powder-coated black and pink steel and wooden slats which wrap ceiling, wall and counter surfaces as well as form shelves. The stripes reflect into a mirrored wall with built-in refrigerators where customers peruse bottles of homemade fruit fusions and unwind before returning to the busting urban life.
