First design concepts for a Metrocentre Café

We have been commissioned by local Ice Cream maker Beckleberry’s, to transform their existing café in the Metrocentre.

The new-look café will incorporate graphic elements, illustrating the journey from a family business to a worldwide distributor.

Interior finishes will include a mix of reclaimed timbers, metalwork and natural materials. Fit-out works comprise of a new shopfront, illuminated signage, new flooring and internal pendant lighting.

The project will commence in early 2020.

Alnwick Food Hall Interior

We designed the interior of the retail space, Alnwick Food Hall, for Turnbull’s the butcher. The store’s located in Willowburn Retail Park, Alnwick and is a modern take on the traditional farm shop.

The design has been inspired by the surrounding area, emphasising the local produce they sell. We developed a range of bespoke display and merchandise stands to make the shop feel contemporary but with a Northumberland edge.

St Oswald’s ‘Ozzie’ the Bus

We assisted St Oswald’s Hospice in the transformation of a double decker bus, donated by Go North East into a charity shop on wheels. The bus was affectionately named ‘Ozzie’ in a public poll.

The vehicle, which was gifted by the region’s biggest bus company to Gosforth-based St Oswald’s, has been given an overhaul to install a heating system and kitchen, so it can be used as a mobile store, workshop and venue. Available to local businesses for private hire, the multi-functional space is also designed to host meetings or corporate events.

With plans to visit fairs, festivals and public events across the region, Ozzie Bus will act as new tool to help the hospice raise over £7.5 million every year – the sum it desperately needs to provide specialist care for patients with life-limiting conditions.

Metro Mini City

We are working alongside Intu to design a mini city styled kids play area within the mall of the MetroCentre, Gateshead.

The space will include soft play, a sensory garden and learning zones. A mini streetscape will be formed within the existing crescent shaped retail block to create a small scale high street, complete with child friendly Supermarket, Workshops and Hairdressers.
