East Dulwich’s busy and increasingly foodie Lordship Lane presented itself
as a perfect location for this café and bakery.
We created a simple, clean space with strong lines and a minimal palette of materials. The length of the left hand wall is finished in blackboard paint with menus and offers handwritten in chalk, connecting the entrance shop floor with the café at the rear.
The flooring follows the wall in an off-black stained solid oak planking. All the joinery is executed in solid ash including the counter, the shelving which extends into a ceiling feature and large communal tables. The merchandise and clientele add further texture and colour.
