Dripp is a specialty coffee purveyor with a passion for creating handcrafted beverages and inspiring memorable experiences. The new South Coast Plaza (SCP) location is no exception. A flagship location for the growing southern California chain, the design conveys a clean, modern vibe. The concept celebrates the making of coffee and tea, while elevating the exceptional experience for each guest. Dripp’s sleek aesthetics fit within the context of the luxury retail center but is anything but a commodity.
A highlight of the space are two long vaulted copper-clad light fixtures located above the consumer-focused aisles. The configuration adds a bit of mystery, alluding to a sky above despite the retail shop’s ground-floor location. The illusion of overhead daylight is made possible by keeping these areas unobstructed by structural or mechanical elements.
