Description: The cafe is organized in three 'strands' that are conceived as an extension of the flow of the city; a smooth deviation from and returning to the adjacent sidewalk. Each strand is composed of a series of interlocking wood 'blocks'. The size of the blocks was constrained by the dimensions of a single plywood sheet. 15 blocks accommodate the cafe's 15 functional requirements. Portions are carved out of each block to create spaces of exchange between the server and customer. These subtractions generated interlocking connections between the blocks, allowing them to be easily stacked and assembled on site.
