Interior architecture specialists Bone have reinterpreted the countryside architecture created for horses to create a coffee shop that is sparse, utilitarian and natural.

Located in Ras Al Khaimah, United Arab Emirates, Hoof is run by three friends who share interests in show-jumping and speciality coffee.

In developing a concept that would honour those interests, Bone went about reimagining the function and design of a horse stall.

The minimalist design and proportions of a stall, which serve to provide the horse with no more or less than is required, have been drawn through into the space.

Clay walls are left plain, lime-finished banquettes run along the base of the walls to provide seating and stainless steel bars and sinks emulate water troughs.

In a nod to the process and ritual of tending to horses, the coffee-making process is deconstructed, with each stainless steel element serving one aspect of it.

Natalie Mahakian, co-founder of Bone, explained: "Hoof embodies a brutalist reinterpretation of countryside equine architecture where the physical discrepancies between noble, interior, and exterior materials, as well as utilitarian and natural finishes, play an integral role in defining a sensorial architecture."
