Brighton, East Sussex
Helen’s cafe in Brighton is a local favourite because it is simple and has great character. The opportunity came to expand next door which would give kitchen space to cook more substantial lunches and suppers. Our involvement was to advise where to knock through, how to set out the second kitchen, and how both shop fronts could look joined by the same activity when seen from the street. We suggested that Helen should keep her build uncomplicated with a brilliant arsenic painted wall across both sides and a fun level change around the old chimney.
