Tujuhari coffee is a coffee shop and multipurpose space located in the south of Jakarta. Tujuhari brand itself promotes a productive and collaborative culture in its coffee shop. This pilot project is designed to be more than just a coffee shop but an open platform for any programs related to work, art and culture; a social condenser on a mini scale, where programs overlap and intersect in the same space. People with different backgrounds, interests, and activities coexist in the same environment which drives social interaction.
This space consists of a mini amphitheatre, working space, artist feature wall, small performing stage, vinyl station and a bookshop. Various happenings from movie screening night, book launching, music party, startup pitch meeting, art exhibition, and charity event can take place in the productivity chamber.
Sometimes a tangible space divider is required for particular events. Therefore, curtains are installed to help compartmentalize the chamber to ease space management. Expanded metal mesh drop ceiling is introduced in the productivity chamber to differentiate the space experience to the adjacent cafe chamber. The ceiling is also used to diffuse the light and to cover up the utilities.
Practical and durable materials such as concrete, stainless steel, galvanized metal, and silver-painted wooden board is used to give a neutral and subtle tone. White ceramic tile and cement wall are also opted for to supplement the mood. Red color which is Tujuhari brand color is used to highlight some features on this project such as metal plate door handle and elevator wall.
An exterior facelift is part of the design work. To wrap the existing shop house facade, permeable and lightweight material is selected as additional secondary skin. Expanded metal mesh facade from the interior ceiling is consistently used on the facade; the new skin acts as sun shading, which also gives a dematerialized effect on the building. The folded geometry of the facade gives depth and texture on the building which makes it stand out from flat and monotonous row of typical shop houses.
