Bringing to light the quirky, multi-functional and innovative design elements unearthed in twenty of New Zealand’s hippest cafés and exploring the creative drive and philosophy of the owners, designers and architects who contributed to these original spaces, Built for Caffeine provides a novel insight into NZ café culture. Ben Crawford illustrates how these concepts are transferable to residential design, making the home a place for communication, relaxation and inspiration—and possibly the first choice of where to indulge in an afternoon flat white. Each café is allotted a visually appealing spread of images detailing the exterior and interior features, a one-on-one coffee break style interview with the creator and a breakdown of the three best aspects of the creative space with realistic suggestions on how to implement those ideas at home. Unique menu boards to original wall art and stunning light fixtures are a few of the many personal touches that Ben Crawford explores, creating a visual notebook of the most memorable and inspirational café concepts to bring home.
