Little Cove Espresso design inspired by Melbourne seaside

Sai Kung cafe Little Cove Espresso has drawn attention for its design in making use of natural seaside materials.


The coastside venue was designed by Studio Adjective, founded by Emily Ho and Wilson Lee just two years ago. It has drawn praise for its “design language communicating flow and continuity.”


The minimal, Melbourne-inspired look of the cafe features double-height windows, a high-ceiling interior, and curved design points such as arches and protruding curved edges. Dark oak panels on a grey marble-topped coffee counter are placed to evoke the oceanic waves, an effect that is especially pronounced in the afternoon sunlight.




“The use of curved details has been inspired by the brand’s coastal cafe concept and also the logo’s wave pattern,” explains Studio Adjective design director, Lee.



“We tried to translate the identity into different spatial and furniture details in the cafe to create a clean and subtle, and also bold and unique signature”.
