Studio Found create coffee roastery with barista training for homeless

An industrial space in Peckham, south east London, has been transformed into a coffee roastery and barista training school thanks to a collaboration between London design agencies Studio Found and ANDTHENSTUDIO

17/11/2019 1 min read

Commissioned by Old Spike Roastery and Change Please – a not-for-profit organisation – the project saw an existing warehouse converted into an airy, high-impact space that functions not only as a roastery and packaging depot for Old Spike Roastery, but also as a barista training school for homeless people. It will also be open to the public at certain times as a coffee and events space.

Working to a limited timescale and budget, the team designed a bold and hard-wearing concept and layout that made best use of the cavernous space for all its different functions.

Low cost and easily available materials, such as black stained plywood, steel mesh and polycarbonate, were chosen to create a sturdy, clean industrial interior while colour and personality were added through the use of bold graphics. Elements of timber were also used to soften the look and absorb sound.

‘We wanted to create a space that not only delivered on functionality but also created an in-your-face visual representation of the Old Spike Roastery and Change Please brands,’ said Ed Plumb, Design Director of Studio Found. ‘Somewhere dynamic and exciting, where people felt immersed and connected to those brands as well as welcomed. It was also a pleasure to collaborate with ANDTHENSTUDIO on this project’
