Located in Bangkok, Thailand, the Patom Organic Living Cafe is everything I’ve ever wanted in a coffeeshop. The cafe serves as a shop for Patom Organic Living products, a classroom for sustainable living workshops and a farmer’s market for local farmers to sell their goods. Designed by the architects at NITAPROW, the shop is encased in glass and set against a wooden frame. It’s perfectly placed in the center of a lush garden full of fruit trees and vegetation.
The wood compliments the white interior perfectly. The spiral staircase adds a nice touch to the room. The architect states “The use of curvature in the design facilitates both the physical and the visual flow of the rectangular enclosure and conceptually reconnects the interior design language with its landscape. The rattan wrapped spiral staircase and the corresponding curved mezzanine add to the overall interior, an elevated getaway with a privileged view, a hint of intimacy and playfulness.”
The structural posts and beams were made from reclaimed Redwood and Tabak wood that was recovered from the owner’s abandoned houseboat. I love that the wood has such personal history to it. View more photos from Patom Organic Living Cafe below. Photography by Ketsiree Wongwan.
