Interior Design Style: Industrial / Rustic / Bohemian
Concept: Café / Lounge
We decided to design Greca in such a way that we would be able to incorporate existing
structural conditions into the interior design, without undergoing extensive construction
Exposed pipes, concrete foundation columns and floors were the structural elements we had to
work with, and the perfect canvas to create an industrial space with a mix of rustic
To accommodate the client’s budget and invest resources in other components of the project we
decided to work with - and around - those existing elements and incorporate them into the
The concept was to create a bohemian, fresh, Mediterranean oasis in a space that functioned
as a café / bakery during the day and an exotic, upbeat lounge, in the evening.
We incorporated washed salvaged oak to bring in natural textures, warmth and coziness to
balance out the sleek looking concrete.
Custom-designed lights – manufactured in Greece – were incorporated to add a soft earthy
touch to the look.
The drapery – in soft, ivory linen – was also imported from Greece, giving the modern glass
storefront a soft, elegant look.
