The Newport Coffee House is an interior build-out of an existing commercial space in the heart of downtown Evanston. The design process began with a casual conversation between the architect and the owner in a small café in Andersonville. Part of the discussion covered the elements required with making exceptional coffee. This inspired the notion of precision required in the laboratory setting which helped conceptualize the coffee bar- the focal point of the space. The lab concept also drove the organization of the equipment and the ash wood light rig which highlights and illuminates the work performed at the coffee bar. Pristine white Slayer espresso machines positioned symmetrically on the coffee bar reinforce the notion of a laboratory for coffee.

As a result, national identity is completely absent in the newly created environment. New objects, erected even in an open field, have also been designed for several decades without realizing that they belong to the national culture.

This project deploys itself in the great landscape of North-Isere, rationally adapted to the slope. The site, a large sloping meadow facing north, turns its back to the village. The vegetal environment is its quality, the topography its constraint.
