Located in the heart of the small city of Veroia in Northern Greece, Flow microroastery introduces the art of specialty coffee in a clean, minimalistic interior space, designed by VP Architectural Studio.
Housed on the ground floor of an old apartment building, the store comprises an attic on the first floor, and a mini garden that surrounds it. The central space of the store has a characteristic double height and a linear stair leading onto the attic. To shape the interior, architect Vicky Poriki and the team used these elements as the main design tool, to create a concept of serenity between the handcrafted wooden furnishing and the white canvas of the sitting area.
The main bar is placed in a linear direction in front of the attic’s stairs separating the sitting area and the production space. Taking advantage of the store’s high ceiling, while the windows are kept at their double height, the main bar allows daylight to flood into the space throughout the day, while potted plants, including an olive tree give a fresh breath of nature. The open-plan design aims to reveal all the preparations for coffee and brunch, making the customers part of the creative process. The roasting process takes place on the first floor, where the store owners create specialty blends sourced from sustainable producers.
