Dean Street Cafe

I mentioned in last week’s Friday Faves that I had been to a gathering at the very inspiring Dean Street Cafe along with a group of design bloggers, as organised by the brilliant We Are Function and Form. The cafe, designed by Nina+Co, is a social enterprise from charity Centrepoint, providing jobs and skills to homeless young people. Nina designed this flexible space to accommodate the charity’s weekday functions and then they open their doors to the public at the weekend serving delicious coffee, pastries and food. It was great to hear from Nina about the detail of her design and I thought you’d like to see few images of the cafe’s interior for inspiration…

This wall of cupboards has been designed to store all of the cafe furniture so that the whole room can be completely cleared if needs be.

The pegboards provide space for shelves that can be easily removed during the week whilst the cafe is being used for charity events and training for the young people from Centrepoint.

The cafe kitchen can be closed off during the week by hanging the blackboards on the large black hooks.

If you are in the area you should definitely pop in one weekend and enjoy this lovely space supporting a brilliant cause.
