Hospitality – Habana Cafe
The additional challenges were to camouflage the bathrooms and, since the owner is also a tile sub-contractor, to use tile as much as possible. All this needed to be accomplished while showcasing Cuban culture through the design and décor.
With the space made more functional, we then focused on creating a relaxing vibe with warm reds, yellows, and browns, images of palm trees, and glints of shimmering glass tile visible from outside and across the downtown square. The bar stools, converted from glossy wood congas, have chrome metal accents that add a layer of sparkling intrigue, luring customers in just to gawk.
