Coffee roaster Ozone has opened a new space inside an east London warehouse, featuring plywood interiors by local studio Box 9.

Box 9 has created custom tables and bench seating to complement the bright and airy aesthetic of the restaurant and roastery.

Located in Bethnal Green, it is the second venue that New Zealand-based Ozone has opened in London.

With space inside for 100 covers, it is designed to function as well for casual brunches as it does for nomadic workers. As well as the coffee roastery and kitchen, it also includes a pizzeria and a cocktail bar.

“Designed for the bruncher, first dater, creative worker, family catchup-er, meeting shaker, dog walker, holidaymaker, local morning walker or all the above, our new space is for everyone,” says Ozone on its website.

Plywood was used to add warmth along one side of the space. It covers the walls and floors, and also forms the seating booths. These are embellished with spherical wall lights and forest green upholstery.

In the centre of the room, larger sharing tables are accompanied by Snøhetta’s S-1500 chairs, which are made from recycled fishing nets.

A large lighting fixture creates a graphic detail across the exposed, white-painted ceiling, while tables are decorated with dried flower arrangements by artist Fran Newman Day.

A low partition, lined on one side by a brick bench, creates a partition between the eating area and the kitchen. Here, chefs prepare seasonal dishes with a focus on sustainability.

Counter seating gives some diners a direct view into the open kitchen, including the large wood-fired pizza oven.

There’s also a small shop area, where Ozone is selling bags of its coffee alongside magazines and a few select products.

Ozone’s first venue is on Leonard Street, also in east London. The new venue is about a mile east on Emma Street.

Other new restaurants that have opened in the capital this year include maximalist French eatery Bob Bob Cité and Asian-inspired venue Lucky Cat.
