Design note

The brickwork outbuilding is located behind Royal Crescent, one of the most historic streets in Cheltenham. Used in recent years for storage and car parking we achieved planning and listed building consent for our client in May 2015 to convert the building into a cafe and studio spaces.

The cafe features The Scandinavian Coffee Pod, a 2.3metre steel frame and glass cube which will project out of the building at a 45 degree angle. The coffee pod is a prototype structure with more planned in other city’s around the country. The freestanding nature of the pod allows for greater flexibility of the seating area behind, which will be used for art exhibitions and functions.
