Designed by SODA Architects, CUPONE cafe in Beijing resembles an architectural mountain and water landscape painting with vivid colours

Located at the headquarters of BMW China, CUPONE  is a modern cafe themed around mountains and rivers by SODA Architects. The decorative mountains deliver a cosy feeling of privacy to the open lobby, and the coming and going of visitors act as the rivers flowing through them.

The lobby is designed as an artistic visual center that allows people to sit back and relax. Nearly 300 vertical leaves are installed, of which the champagne plated exteriors provide reflection, forming a three-dimensional dynamic filter. Colour and patterns on each leaf change continuously when people move. These leaves of different sizes are planted from the floor up to a height of 2.4 metres, and together, they create a range of mountains that provides visitors with a feeling of relative privacy and freedom of space.

Led by Chinese duo Jiang Yuan and SongChen, SODA Architects applied a colourful yet mysterious tone of peacock blue as the main colour scheme, as well as refined solid wood and marble materials as details.
