Leading industry magazine, Hospitality Interiors, has written a full page article on our coffee shop design for Claud W. Dennis.  Hot on the heels of their exposure in the Sunday Times, the North London coffee shop was singled out for its 'mix of old and new' that 'gives charming personality and a competitive edge'. Our coffee shop design for Claud W. Dennis, completed in Autumn 2014, played on the heritage of the building, and incorporated a number of fantastic vintage items found in the building's loft.  Named after the previous owner, a renowned local property man, the shop design made use of his original stain-glass window and advertising boards.

The article highlights the design's use of heritage and technology to woo customers in an industry dominated by big brands. They said: "To meet the needs of the modern customer, the fit-out's cutting-edge technology is deftly incorporated into the vintage look. " Of the bespoke iPad bar that offers customers free internet surfing, they said: "The sleek modern iPad design fits neatly in the beautifully constructed hand-made wooden structure, to create a unique and inviting juxtaposition."

Creative director, Evros Agathou, says: “Independent coffee shops have to go the extra mile to win loyalty in a market dominated by big brands.  At Claud W Dennis, our design is rooted in the area’s history while meeting the needs of the modern customer. By mixing the two we’re creating visually what the owners have set out to achieve – a coffee shop for the local community that aims to stand the test of time.”
