PROJECT 01

Kafka Coffee Shop

CLIENT: PRIVATE OWNER / PAD.

LOCATION: NORTHBRIDGE, WESTERN AUSTRALIA

2016-03-30 17.10.14 copy copy2.jpg

COFFEE SHOP INTERIOR, KAFKA COFFEE SHOP

     PAd. provided on-site assessment and formal compliance review services to facilitate, approvals, permits and certificates.

Role:

Consultant, Architectural Technician

During the design development, approval process and construction of the Kafka Coffee Shop in Northbridge, PAd. provided consultancy services to aid the implementation, approval and delivery of the design intent. Incorporating recycled materials within the design and the requirement to provide universal access to an existing premise, PAd. provided on-site assessment and formal compliance review services to facilitate, approvals, permits and certificates.

Where projects seek to incorporate recycled or repurposed materials within new construction, those materials must still comply with current regulation. Upon formal assessment of the proposal and reference to relevant Australian Standards, PAd. was able to provide a deemed to comply solution for utilising a beautifully recycled 1900’s leadlight windows within the fitout. Additionally, a suitable and cost-efficient access compliant solution was achieved ensuring Kafka Coffee Shoup could be opened on time with required permits obtained.

Challenges:

  • Successful construction and maintenance of the design intent according to the approved architectural scheme.

Role:

Consultant, Architectural Technician

During the refurbishment of the Asthma Foundation offices in West Perth, PAd. provided pro bono consultancy services to aid the development of a universal access compliant solution.

Michael assessed the existing conditions of the West Perth offices and provided a practical, cost efficient and aesthetically suitable solution to provide universal access to the upgraded premises.

The design solution provided was deemed to comply to Australian Standard 1428.1 and enabled the project to proceed to construction in accordance with the approved Architectural scheme.
