Little Bean Roasters. China

Having created Little Bean’s original flagship in Shanghai, Platform was engaged to create a complete Design Delivery Manual for the brand to inform planning of all future sites in China.

This functionally dense first venue performs multiple capabilities for Little Bean, with a cafe, roastery and coffee academy on site offering a 360 degree brand experience for education and immersion.

An approachable yet aspirational environment is formed through curved elements, and a utilitarian palette of cast concrete and timber, accentuated by reflective surfaces and softened by greenery.

This framework has since been adapted for further sites, including a concession at K11 mall in Shanghai. Each bolsters the brand’s credibility as a third wave coffee institution in China.
