The Daughter Cafe is located in Brooklyn, New York. Designed by Christopher Al-Jumah, the cafe is community-oriented and features brownstone stoop-inspired seating, informed by the staircases of local buildings. The cafe's interior boasts a long and narrow space, defined by its L-shaped brownstone seating.
Its carved-out booths are visible from the street through the cafe's large floor-to-ceiling windows. The indoor seating is made from a plywood base given a concrete coating and topped with sand and a layer of resin for durability. This specific design is the Daughter Cafe's play on Brooklyn's noteworthy stoops and acts as the interior's focal point. The casual seating aims to invite people into the cafe to lounge around, much as Brooklyn dwellers would do on outdoor stoops.
