Botero’s new fitout on Adelaide Street is to be the Coffee Roaster’s Queensland headquarters. Housing both a cafe and training facility the fitout needed to express the dedication to quality associated with brand. Jackson Teece worked closely with the client to develop a concept that both honoured the original bones of the building and showcased the clients brand.

In peeling back the layers of newer finishes Jackson Teece found a rich textured palette. Original brickwork, exposed hardwood timber beams and polished concrete form the backdrop to the cafe located on the ground and mezzanine levels. Teamed with brass and oak furniture elements allows Botero’s organic branding to take centre stage.

The ground floor plan centres around a concrete bar front that houses both coffee and bar facilities. The mezzanine level upstairs creates a more intimate bar and dinning setting for a morning breakfast meeting or an evening drink. Office and staff areas along with a coffee training area are located on the top floor. This level is more simple and pared back but still respects the buildings original finishes.
