Human BeanBali, IndonesiaNovember 2018 130m2
Human Bean is a café in Pererenan, Bali. Set on a leafy street corner surrounded by local residences and guesthouses, the café complements the neighbourhood’s natural and laidback charm.
A mix of lounge, communal and table seating is arranged on a floating timber deck, under an open-sided pergola. Local plants and trees filter views from the street, offering a softened privacy to the café.
Pre-existing fruit trees were maintained to mingle with the seating, lending their character to the venue. Their branches grow up through the roof, and daylight filters through their canopies and the slatted bamboo ceiling to softly illuminate the space.
