Inside JJ Bean Lonsdale
JJ Bean Coffee Roasters welcomes their second location to North Vancouver with their newest cafe at the corner of 17th and Lonsdale. Located inside the Local on Lonsdale condo development completed last year, they've collaborated with long time design partners at DIALOG to create another beautiful design inspired by the North Shore.
The JJ Bean Lonsdale space is a contemporary interpretation of the the local rainforests and mountains using a bright colour palette. Wood table tops and chairs are all finished with sky blue and light green paint while thirty-three cedar poles placed throughout the cafe reach nearly thirty feet to the vaulted ceilings.
Originally envisioned as two separate retail units, there's a large elevation change between the Lonsdale and 17th Street entrances so a series of concrete platforms were laid to create seating areas on different levels inside the cafe. The wood theme continues through the concrete walls next to the ramps and stairs which were formed with wooden boards leaving the wood grain texture on the surface of the concrete.
The back wall of the cafe stretches nearly 100 feet long but is broken up with a series of three dimensional geometric triangles created in the drywall. There are also alcoves built into the back wall creating several intimate seating spaces inside the cafe.
JJ Bean Coffee's grand opening promo week tradition carries at their Lonsdale cafe with a variety of offers available throughout the week. And JJ Bean's two public coffee cuppings this week will be held at the Lonsdale cafe on July 24th and 25th from 1PM - 2PM.
