"Socialhaus is a modern rendition of the Viennese cafe, the German biergarten, and the Chinese Mahjong bar; it's designed to compensate for the individualized and scattered world we live in nowadays: come solo, and leave with friends."
I designed the space with connections in mind. It is a cozy space designed for one to meet members of the community as people gather to have genuine conversations.
Socialhaus is meant to be a social community space where guests can share a falafel with strangers. The space is composed of a reception counter, floor and window seating, as well as board games and conversation areas.
With a limited budget, we were able to put together a space with furnishing from IKEA and Facebook marketplace, turned out rather cozy!
