Franchise: Hope Island
Completed: October, 2017
This beautifully 'crafted' fitout was carried out by our Hope Island Shopfitters on the Gold Coast - and what a winning cafe design it is!
Completed within a tight schedule to suit the client’s brief and landlord’s timeframes, our shop fitters managed to pull off something really special for Helana’s Espresso! The fast track nature of the project demanded close collaboration between client, architect and fitout contractors (Total Fitouts Hope Island). The coordination meant issues were resolved quickly, efficiently and without compromising the design and quality of workmanship. The space selected for the shop fit was small, with several limitations in terms of access and service points. Through several design meetings, the best layout for the space was chosen and complications avoided. The architect worked closely with all trades to achieve a stunning and practical cafe fit out that was everything the client had hoped for.
What were the clients main goals for this fit out?
Helena’s Espresso is a bespoke specialty cafe – revamped in this new location (Central Nerang) to act as fresh re-branding of the former cafe. Helena’s brief to the architect was for a simple, timeless aesthetic, a space that encourages a warm and friendly atmosphere where all food and drink preparation areas are open and visible. Her goals were for a cafe that customers felt comfortable to browse and walk around in – providing an experience, that is reflective of a welcoming home.
With an inspired design brief and beautiful materials, our shop fitters got to the task of building the beautiful space that is now Helena’s Espresso.
Our Queensland shopfitters created a cafe with seamless transition between inside and outside to allow for free-flow movement with no barriers. Within the servery zones, Helena asked for maximum preparation bench spaces, in an efficient layout to cater for specific cafe equipment, whilst ensuring the customer displays were high impact and generous in size and proportion.
The fitout is characterised by a unique blend of neutral materials, colours, stainless steel, designer mosaic feature tiles and natural grain laminate finishes. The junctions between each material was carefully thought out to ensure the overall ambience was achieved. Bespoke lighting and fixtures were selected to complement the design direction.
