Well designed – Harvest

Harvest is Ouseburn Coffee Company’s canteen and coffee house.

The interior was developed in house and echoes the classic elements of the OCC brand – with a fresh, simple and classic design.

The Ouseburn Coffee team wanted a domestic and personal feel to the space – reminiscent of a family kitchen, and aimed to create a neighbourhood space that was spacious and calm and invited people to stay longer.

The large windows flood the space with light, emphasised further by the white walls and floor. This expanse of white is contrasted by the central kitchen and island, made from reclaimed dark wood paneling form a local school, square edged steel supports and black laminate ply worktops. The main island is slightly lower than standard specifications to be reminiscent of gathering round a kitchen table.

This simplicity of materials and focus on functionality is echoed in the kitchenware that includes natural string bags to hold fruit, stoneware and bamboo vessels and wire baskets for bread. The perfect partner to their freshly roasted coffee packaged in kraft paper bags with typographic labels.
