The cafe is located in front of one of the most popolar mall in Manila, Rockwell. It is an area in the development with pedestrian traffic between skyscrapers offices and the mall. this small outdoor green space comes to life thanks to the creation of the cafe as an area on the street level.

the idea was to take as inspiration a glasshouse to emphasize the relationship with the outer space and maintain contact with the tropic nature that was already present in the area, breaking the boundaries between indoor and outdoor

Materials such as stones and terrazzo were selected in combination for the surfaces of the bar, while two marbles in contrasting black and white to create a decorative carpet to define the most intimate area with sofas. Tabletop in wood and stone alternate in different areas.

Beetle chair by Gubi and Targa sofa and Morris chair by Gebruther Thonet Vienna have been selected for this interior as well Louis Poulsen VL lamps.
