Clad in standing-seam black sheet metal, this urban cabin has a monolithic and low-key appearance during the day. In contrast, the interior is covered with light spruce panels. Large windows and skylights flood the cafe with natural light during the day. At night however, the building appears to glow; large openings frame indoor activity and the indoor illumination accentuates the sharp contrast between metal and wood.

In addition to the wood-lined interior, the Frudisiac juice bar and cafe uses its spatial layout and furnishings to create a rustic and inviting atmosphere. The cafe is organized around a long wooden picnic table, where customers can sit family-style. Furnishings are kept minimalist and are mostly made from timber with metal accents. The cafe space is separated from the rear kitchen with a large orthogonal bookshelf.
