From our LEEDS certified designer MELANIE MARTIN from Flow Environments

In the fall of 2011 and winter of 2012 Flow Environments worked with a new small business owner to realise her dream of opening a community hot-spot showcasing not only quality espresso and baked goods but also the handiwork of her homeland: Colombia.

The clientele and products are lively, colourful and joyous so FE soaked in the vibe for a bit to come up with a suitable environment for people to meet-up, share ideas and build their community over a good laugh and cup of coffee. It was a fun process and the results are invigorating!

Using salvaged, refurbished, and ethically sourced materials and furnishings fulfilled FE’s obligation to responsible design. Not only did the natural finishes serve the clients budget and desire to ensure a healthy environment, they also suited the authentic cultural experience the cafe needed.

FE served ToC from begining to end with budget, education, coordination, design and furniture build and finishing touches.
