Come As You Are (CAYA) Cafe is a recently established co-working coffee club in Brixton, London. Working with a very tight budget, the brief involved dividing the premises to accommodate a bustling street side cafe to the front with a quiet yet interactive co-working zone to the rear. The concept involved the use of natural materials, colour and planting to successfully interlace an inviting and vibrant cafe feel with a contemporary edge suitable for working professionals. The use of art and eye catching graphics&signage both internally and externally aim to promote the creativity of the brand as well as inspire the freelancers using the co-working areas. Many of the materials used were receycled and reworked to suit the needs and layout of the space.
