Look! Something with COLOUR! Normally I’m not into that kinda thing, but this is so lovely.

APPAREIL Architecture has designed Pastel Rita - a 1500 sqf café, artisans’ workshops, and boutique space all brought to life with beautiful shades of pink, green and gold.

Located on St-Laurent street in the Mile-End neighbourhood of Montreal, the cafe - named in honor of Rita, the owners grand-mother - consists of a large central bar in green, contrasting with a gold corridor peeking out through slatted screens with arched openings, showcasing the artisans’ goods for sale. Surrounding the bar are pink tables, chairs and banquettes, with large windows looking into the whitewashed studios where the makers are at work.
