Gallery: Code Black Coffee: Two Melbourne Warehouses Merge to Create In...

 
Using existing buildings helps to regenerate the urban fabric while saving considerable natural resources.

Dark and moody, Code Black Coffee is an open space defined by rough steel framing, polished concrete floors, natural Oriented Strand Board walls, and black-painted brick. The original warehouse windows were left intact to bring in a smidgeon of natural light, while the rest of the mixed-use space is illuminated with funky yellow light bulbs.

Instead of building anew in an already saturated urban landscape, Cafenatics Operations opted for a sustainable renovation that preserves two previously abandoned warehouses. Both an office and a cafe for the public, Code Black Coffee maintains an open aesthetic, though the administrative programs are mostly hidden from view, and a unique ambience that is completely complimentary of coffee-drinking culture.
