This community café was part of the wider climbing centre project, it was designed as a space where people can spend time as a family with views over the adjoining climbing, skating and play areas. It also has space for those who are alone to sit and relax or work while enjoying the good food and good coffee!
We designed and built the external furniture and the reception desk/café servery while working with the charity to source second-hand furniture for the remainder of the spaces.
