Chalk Architecture creates Small Batch Coffee branch

Chalk Architecture has designed a new concession for the Small Batch Coffee Company, which will sit within the My Hotel Brighton.


This will be the third outlet for the company, which already has two standalone stores. Chalk Architecture won the project having designed the second store.

According to Chalk Architecture director Damon Webb, the new design ‘pushes the concept forward’ with richer materials and bespoke pieces to invoke warmth. 

A counter of pre-cast concrete will sit on reclaimed Victorian Staffordshire bricks. Walls are to be lined with salvaged mahogany cladding, positioned vertically, and bespoke high-chairs have been designed by Chalk.

‘These are made from chunky timber which fit in with the theme, but as a contrast there are also injection-molded plastic Philippe Starck gnome stools,’ says Webb.

Low pendant lighting will feature as well as coffee beans and brewing equipment to give ‘a strong retail focus,’ according to Small Batch Coffee Company. 

The branch is opening on 17 November.
