sign of the times by Unknown

Recently, we've been doing some research on coffee shop signage for Caffe Ladro and we came across some really awesome designs we couldn't help but share. Exterior signage not only announces the name of the coffee shop but the initial impression from the sign can also play an important role in shaping the overall experience for the consumer so it is a crucial part of the design process! Effectively designed signage can capture the culture and atmosphere of a coffee shop, attracting customers to the shop. Check out some of the signs we loved.

The Wire Staircase | The Runners House by AR Design Studio by Unknown



















It is our responsibility as designers to create not only beautiful architecture, but to integrate safety of the occupants within architecture by any means.




















In The Runners House by AR Design Studio, the implementation of safety can be noticed in the staircase. 




















The architects integrated safety by designing a minimal stairs that are suspended from the ceiling by series of  wire cables to prevent people from falling. 


























The staircase divides the dining space from the living space, yet the wire cables allows visual transparency between two spaces. Learn more about this wire stairs here, and check out more cool stairs at www.stairporn.org
