The Wangstudio prooves with this fabulous Vietnam Coffee Design that bricks aren’t outdated.
A grid of 24 red bricks arches frames the interior of the space which sits between a garden with a reflective pool of water around it.
The F Coffee is nestled near the airport in Dong Hoi, a city in Quang Binh Province.
Principal architect Le Vu Quang wanted to create as simple a structure as possible, so came up with a design for a quadrangle building made up of brick walls and arched openings.
“We usually start with the most basic and easy-to-understand ideas,” Le Vu Quang told Dezeen. “F Coffee was designed around the concept of minimalism – brick, concrete, stone, trees and water – to create a concise and emotional space.”
The grid of walls divides the building up into two layers. The outer layer takes the form of a sheltered terrace, where chairs and tables are positioned between the arches, while the inner layer houses the shaded cafe.
Machine-made red bricks were sourced from a local manufacturer for the walls. These were built up with little flourish, apart from a curving soldier course that follows the outline of each arch.
