A reflection of the diverse community it’s now a part of, Botero House at 258 Adelaide Street honours the original bones of this heritage building and brings to life the soul of a Brisbane coffee staple’s present and future.
Housing both a cafe and training facility, the fitout expresses Botero’s consistent dedication to people and food. Jackson Teece worked closely with the client to develop a concept that both honoured the story so far, and those that are yet to come.
In peeling back the layers of newer finishes, Jackson Teece found a rich, textured palette of original brickwork, exposed hardwood timber beams, and polished concrete – encapsulating the rugged yet welcoming heart of this inner city oasis. Robust, warm conversations with friends over ethically sourced coffee, and a reprieve from the dizzying heights of its modern surrounds, brass and oak furniture bring subtle attention to Botero’s existing organic branding.
