KIAORA

JEDDAH, KSA

KIAORA is the first specialty espresso bar in Jeddah offering authentic urban contemporary Latin ambiance. The design aims to create a cultural hub that engages customers in a multi-sensory experience of the Latin neighborhood by taking into consideration all aspects affecting the human senses with real Latin taste, controlled acoustics, visual comfort & well-studied ventilation systems that distributes airflow making the coffee scent dominant.

To draw locals to experience a different culture, KIAORA had to be attractive from the exterior, thus Axis Interior applied dynamic facades using curtains made of colored aluminum chains which they move in response to the wind flow making the coffee bar looks inviting. Creating visual comfort was very crucial to smoothly mimic an old Latin neighborhood using exposed columns, real aged wall (made in 90 days) & industrial elements with harmony.

 

With a 500 sqm area, the café efficiency is optimized by separating the main bar from the cashier bar & angling it to a 30 degree maximizing the orders delivery. All materials used are provided locally including 3D custom-made rustic panels, rough concrete & aged walls. The energy of the Latin culture is reflected with vibrant patterns. The acoustics are designed to maximize sound system wattage and minimize echo enhancing the overall ambiance.
