Whimsical elements create a playful space for connection
A playful park concept sets the tone for this juice bar in Vancouver and offers inspiration for those looking for hospitality trends. Bursting with colour, pattern and texture, the charming space of Kevin and Kevin impacted foodies and restaurateurs in the city and has since established itself as a fun space for connection and concentration.
The design by Courtney Cline of MGBA (Mallen Gowing Berzins Architecture) earned a Value of Design Awards for Innovation in Hospitality Design, awarded by Interior Designers Canada. Elements found in urban outdoor spaces and environments were incorporated within every detail, material and fixture, revealing a lively, whimsical design narrative. And yes, the space includes suspended seating.
Launched in 2018, the Interior Designers Canada awards shine a spotlight on Canadian interior designers by providing a forum to showcase the benefits of design thinking: an empathetic, inventive, and iterative process focused on the human experience within interior spaces. The 2021 Awards recognize those who continue to push the boundaries of interior design. —Editors
