Milkie Milkie // S Weller St
Korean Shaved Ice Cafe
Milkie Milkie took space in the historic, original, Uwajimaya building in the International District. The building has its own Japanese character. We worked with the International District Historical Board to preserve the building’s character and meet the board’s design guidelines. The landlord has done major upgrades for the upcoming tenants. We helped with a fit test so that the interior space can be divided effectively.
The concept for this interior design project is to be timeless with a hint of nostalgia, combining modern and traditional surfaces. Curves and arches replicate the soft taste and the shape of the shaved ice dessert.
A pastel color palette was selected to complement the shaved ice topping flavors like soft green from green tea , egg cream, strawberry rose, toasted tan, and beige wood.
Patchwork of materials in the bar area with alternating colors are for create a cozy yet lively, and pleasant space with sweet taste in this historic area.
