Osten | Hamilton

Designed to bridge the space between the joint Hamilton headquarters of Volkswagon and Audi, Osten Café takes on the clean, timeless sensibilities that make each brand famous while forging a fresh look of its own. Drawing on the precision of European design, attention to detail was key here. A simple palette emerged, incorporating black and white feature elements with warm oak walls and furnishings, softened textiles and handcrafted lighting that cut through the sharper industrial materials.

Creating a cohesive common space for the two distinct brands, the café softens the adjoining buildings’ strong corporate identities and operates independently as warm space to engage the local community.
