Dantes

Dantes is a gourmet sandwich and coffee bar on the corner of Tates Ave and Lisburn Road in Belfast. The building is on a complex site which fronts onto both roads at this busy intersection. We were approached by Todd Architects to design the interiors for the building. The brief was for a ground floor sandwich bar and café with a production facility and offices at the first floor for the outside catering business. The budget was very tight given the volume of structural work and much use was made of simple plasterboard features with indirect coloured fluorescent lighting. The main counter is in zinc with corian worktops and counters throughout. The overall effect is of a very light and clean space with sharp contemporary detailing.
