Harlan + Holden Glasshouse Cafe in Manila
The cafe is located in front of one of the most popolar mall in Manila, Rockwell in the Philippines. It is an area in the development with pedestrian traffic between skyscrapers offices and the mall. this small outdoor green space comes to life thanks to the creation of the cafe as an area on the street level.
The idea was to take as inspiration a glasshouse to emphasize the relationship with the outer space and maintain contact with tropic nature that was already present in the area, breaking the boundaries between indoor and outdoor.
