From the architect. Café Murasaki initiated by the client’s proposal, which planed to renovate a pair of row houses to be the café. In the beginning, the functions are not specific. Then, the first idea started from a loca-on that standing on the suburban area of Bangkok, due to the reason of hard access. Each function is created under the idea of flexibility which could adapt in various usability such as “coffee shop” that provided space for co-­working, meeting or relaxing in the morning, “mini bar” that provide space for recessing or socialize.

Café Murasaki has divided into two areas. The high ceiling area is the common one which consists of many activities. By the way, steel frame that hanging above the counter is not only aesthetically designed, it used to represent the usability in the café. In daily hours, the steel frame is used to hang the menu and glasses, but it has possibilities to transform to place for lightning installation when the party started. Another remaining area with low ceiling is proposed to be privacy, space for meeting or enjoying side dish.
