A literary and ethnic café based in Amman, designed as a cultural venue and home to a myriad of artistic disciplines. It is an L-shaped structure, built on several levels, with concrete and steel as its principal building materials. The walls, floors, and ceilings are unified in texture and in colour. Dark wood inserts were used for the floors, counters and furniture, and built-in niches in the walls house artwork. The entire café wraps around the service kitchen on the ground floor, and includes a coffee bar that is exposed to the outside of the building.
