Beyu Caffe is a semi-upscale, quick-casual coffee house with a full bar located in the historic Art Deco Snow Building in downtown Durham. The interior design of the space exemplifies an adaptive reuse of a historic space to create a modern oasis. The integrity of the interior architecture was maintained by uncovering the original terrazzo flooring and exposed brick front. Local materials and manufacturers were used in the bar design, soft seating and lighting fixtures. The overall color scheme of teal, browns, gold and burgundy creates an inviting space that is indicative of colors found in the “Jazz Age” of Art Deco allowing the space to transform from coffee bistro by day to jazz lounge by night.
