Set in an inner-city double-fronted warehouse shell, Code Black is the new roastery and headquarters of the Melbourne based Cafenatics operations.
The space, designed by Zwei Interiors Architecture, comprises of two mirror-image warehouse shells. One side houses the primary coffee roaster and coffee outlet, the other the administration, operations and dispatch.
Using dark, warm tones to mute the volume, lighting and form create drama within the building’s shell. Yellow highlights punctuate the ceiling of the kitchen and office areas and fabric seating is a Josef Frank coffee bean illustration imported from Sweden. Materials throughout reflect the Code Black branding as the hue of the black colour base, and a strong use of raw black steel uses a language of masculinity, rawness and simplicity.
