To create a brand that will stand out on the high street and deliver superb service and award winning coffee for all.
The site was sold as a coffee shop with a monochrome colour scheme but the site was soon changed internally to reflect a more modern take on the café culture. The ceilings were raised as a high as possible and shutters removed from the front façade to showcase the extraordinary old shop front which use to be a jeweller.
When one thinks of a coffee shop one thinks muted tones, creams, ivory, browns but the brief was clear and inspiration was taken from the renowned Vida e Café in Cape Town, South Africa. The striking red and white look was a gamble but a worth while one as the café attracts clientele from Acton, Chiswick, Ealing and Shepherd’s Bush all travelling to experience the five star service and award winning coffee by Monmouth.
Internally the walls were stripped back to the red brick and one we introduced an industrial take by hanging rusted pendants. The counter was hand crafted by Creative Edge, local cabinet makers.
The Coffee House is the hum drum of the local community and the unconventional look and feel allows it to stand out day or night.
