Kujira Coffee Shop

Kujira, a coffee shop in Montreal, was designed by By Lemoignan and Studio MHA to create two different atmospheres by utilizing the change in levels and making the most of views of the park across the street.

  • area / size 1,980 sqft
  • Year 2023
  • Location Montreal, Canada,
  • In 2022, the founders of Kujira, a coffee roaster of Japanese inspiration based in Montreal, wanted to engage directly with their clients, and open their first neighbourhood coffee shop.

    The space the clients had chosen was on the ground floor of a new building in the Technopole Angus, a sustainably oriented neighbourhood in Montreal.

    The wonderful views of the park across the street, and the strong connection to the exterior had won them over. The designers’ first moves were to exploit the change in levels to create two distinct moods and atmospheres within the coffee shop.
