Hoof Cafe by Studio Bone

Dubai-based studio Bone designs spaces explored the functional aspects of horse stables while embodying the aesthetics of Brutalist architecture in the spartan “Hoof” cafe, located in Ras Al Khaimah, UAE. Narrow sinks have been fitted with stainless-steel taps that are able to serve both the baristas and customers, mimicking the construction of horse water-troughs. Bone used muted hues and warm colors all over the space.
Walls and ceilings are covered in rustic, clay-straw plaster while terracotta semi-exposed aggregate concrete and resin-bound sand have been used for flooring. Woven wool cushions from Swedish textile brand Astrid have been scattered across the banquettes as decor. Fluted-glass wall lights by Lebanese brand PS Lab also dot the clay walls, joining the recessed spotlights by Flos across the ceiling. Bone studio also says for the cafe: “Hoof immerses one in an environment that through its subtle spatial planning, minimalistic architecture, earthy materiality, and detailed construction techniques will make one feel familiar yet intrigued by the implicit yet bold reinterpretation of a horse stable”.
