Summer Cafe / DarkDesignGroup

© Igor Palichev, Dima Zeibert

With a given task to design a temporary summer outdoor cafe with a very limited budget, DarkDesignGroup decided to use basic materials for the walls and roof slabs, which will allow the cafe to be more easily dismantled in the fall. Through the creative use of the OSB on a wood frame, they are able to create a dynamic form which invites the public inside and also allows them to enjoy the outdoor atmosphere. By manipulating the wood frame, they take advantage of the different ways to create openings, which make for an exciting piece of architecture. More images after the break.
