BRIEF FROM STORE DESIGN MANAGER AT COSTA COFFEE
Think big in a small space and inspire the world to love great coffee. What is the smallest store in which we can put a barista and a coffee machine? Where is it?

CONCEPT
By placing a floating structure on the canal, people are encouraged to walk/cycle to work rather than commuting by car/train, in order to improve overall health. This exposure to nature, moderate exercise, and the avoidance of rush hour could improve the mental and physical wellbeing of commuters in every city. Dr Andrea Mechelli concluded that "short term exposure to nature has a measurable beneficial impact on mental wellbeing".
