星城天地店位于主干道旁,是代数学家入驻长沙的首店。高达10米的门头成为视觉吸引的绝对亮点,最大程度上引发消费者的好奇心。

The first store of algebraist coffee in Changsha stands beside the main road. Its outstanding 10-meter-high shopfront has become an attractive visual focus to arouse the consumers’ curiosity to the greatest extent.

设计提取咖啡文化中的特点,在材料应用上进行创新,外立面浮雕感纹路采用砂岩雕刻和彩绘进行3D打印,模拟咖啡的自然流动之感。

The design extracts coffee culture elements and innovates material application. The embossed facade adopts a 3D print approach with painted sandstone carving to simulate the real flowing coffee.

超级符号作为品牌的记忆点,不仅起到视觉导向的作用,同时也是与消费者产生情感连接的重要元素。门头上方背发光Logo位于视觉中心点,入口右侧拼接渐变的红色Logo装置采用亚克力吊装而成。

The super symbol, as the brand symbol, grabs attention and enhances emotional connection with consumers. The back-lit logo at the visual center of the shopfront matches the hanging spliced gradient red acrylic logo installation on the right of the entrance.

门店坐标使用不锈钢镂空雕刻内嵌套亚克力发光圆管,空间的每一处都是精致雕琢的设计细节。超白钢化玻璃搭配银白色极简边框,呈现出独特的工艺美感。

The store coordinates appear as luminous acrylic round tubes embedded in hollow carvings of stainless steel round tubes, and every corner reveals the exquisite design of details. Ultra-white tempered glass with a minimalist silver frame presents a unique aesthetics of craftsmanship.

进入门店内部,设计团队使用模块重复和符号解构策略,该空间采用了不同的材料,具有各自的装饰风格与特点,木色的温暖与银白色的未来感在此交融。

Following a design strategy of module repetition and symbol deconstruction, the interior space uses different materials with distinct decoration styles and characteristics, thus, the warmth of wood and the futuristic sense of silver blend.

吧台区域以深色大理石片铺装,高3.2m的实木雕刻版以80x80cm呈矩阵式排列,这些模块质地细腻丰富,使空间富有层次感。

Refine and rich in texture, the dark marble bar counter and the 3.2-meter-high solid wood composed of a matrix of 80x80cm carved monograms enrich the layers of space.

阵列式模块化的设计也回应着algebraist代数学家品牌内涵中数学的元素,相印成趣。

The arrayed modular design method also responds to the mathematical elements behind the brand algebraist coffee.

设计上杜绝硬朗,以自然的流线贯穿始终。深色墙面延续外立面的设计语言,天花层层铺叠,呈现咖啡澳白的流动感,曲线型的桌面座椅搭配素雅绿植,赋予空间清新温暖的氛围。

With a light and soft design, natural streamlines run through the entire space. The dark inner walls extend the facade design language, and the layers of the ceiling seem like flowing flat white. The curved tabletops and seats and elegant green plants create a fresh and warm atmosphere.

相比长沙首店个性化的品牌呈现,超级文和友店则在融入场地商业氛围上下了一番功夫。

Compared with the personalized brand presentation of the first store in Changsha, Super Wenheyou Store has made great efforts to integrate into the local commercial vibes.

项目所在的超级文和友是长沙必打卡的多业态小型创意商业区,咖啡业态的引入适配了年轻人的生活品味和消费习惯。

The project site Super Wenheyou is a must-visit small-scale creative business district with various forms of business in Changsha. The introduction of the coffee shop adapts to the lifestyle and consumption habits of the young.

设计尊重场地环境,捕捉城市的脉络与肌理,在保留老长沙在地复古的氛围感同时,注入舶来品咖啡的精致感,与在地文化巧妙融合。

A homage to the site, the design grasps the context and fabric of the city. While retaining the vintage atmosphere of Changsha, it injects the delicacy of exotic coffee and ingeniously blends it with the local culture.

瓷砖外立面上方,闪烁着红色霓虹的品牌Logo置入场景之中,与街区内其他灯牌形成视觉对冲,吸引着街道上熙攘人流的目光。

The illuminating red neon brand logo on the tile facade forms an impressive visual contrast with other signboards of the block, attracting the bustling people on the street.

室内的打造以80年代Vintage复古元素为主题,昏暗的暖色调灯光,木质地板和窗门搭配怀旧风的吊扇,浓厚的氛围感引发消费者的情感共鸣。

In the retro 1980’s themed space, the interior design adopted dim and warm lighting, wooden floors, windows and doors with antique-style ceiling fans, resulting in a strong sense of nostalgic atmosphere that arouses emotional resonance among consumers.

设计方和戏剧场景搭建的施工团队合作,店内的桌椅板凳道具都经过精挑细选,为往来打卡的游客编织一段电影般的叙事之旅。

The design team cooperated with a dramatic scene construction team to create a narrative journey of vintage cinema for visitors through the careful selection of each piece of furniture.

在这个低矮的空间中,与三两好友闲坐,回溯老长沙街区灯火阑珊的历史感,品尝一口幸福时尚的咖啡味,慢下来感受岁月静好的感觉。设计将空间与消费体验融合,在这个有机更新的场地中传递温情的力量。

Such low-slung space serves for meetings with friends, recalling the history and memory of the old neighborhood in Changsha, enjoying the refined and trendy coffee, and slowing down to feel the peace and tranquility of time. The design integrates space with the consumption experience, conveying the warm energy in this organically renewed site.

创始人

Klein Dai

Founder of algebraist coffee

“超级符号一直贯彻在代数学家八年的运营中,品牌Logo的设计逻辑来自于产品的制作方式,从咖啡的萃取、手冲咖啡,再到法压壶、虹吸壶等不同咖啡的传统工艺,本质上代表着对咖啡制作的尊重和信仰,也代表着我们对产品质量严谨的追求。

我们希望通过品牌文化与消费者产生友好关联,带给消费者在空间设计和产品上的独到体验。”

“The super symbol has been implemented in the eight-year operation of algebraist coffee. The design logic of the brand logo comes from the coffee-making method, from the extraction of coffee, and pour-over coffee, to the traditional French press coffee and siphon coffee, which essentially represents respect and belief in coffee making, and is also our constant pursuit of high quality. We hope to establish a friendly relationship with consumers through brand culture and bring consumers a unique experience in space design and products. “
