Code Black Coffee

(Brunswick, Melbourne)

Code Black is simultaneously a laboratory, a workshop and a hub for connoisseurs of the dark art and science of coffee. Its design delivers a stripped back, masculine, almost reverential ode to the coffee bean.

Set in a repurposed inner-city double fronted warehouse, Code Black accommodates a new roasting operation, the headquarters for the administration of the existing Cafenatics business, and a public coffee outlet. Code Black is simultaneously a laboratory, a workshop and a hub for connoisseurs of the dark art and science of coffee — its design delivers an authentic, stripped back, masculine, almost reverential ode to the coffee bean. With Zwei’s designs heavily influenced by narrative, incorporating a transparency of operations at Code Black allowed for visitors to be invited in to the complex realm of coffee. This approach has contributed to much international recognition along with the Australian award win and Code Black is shortlisted for the forthcoming World Interiors News Awards which will be presented in London on November 28.
