The brief for this project was to create an attractive outdoor seating area for the adjacent cafe from an area that was a neglected rear yard. The design for this area was complicated by the large level change across the site and the need to provide full disabled access to all areas of the café seating area. This constraint was turned into a positive by using the required steps and ramps to define a series of separate 'rooms' on the different levels. The in-situ concrete walls were clad in natural stone and stainless steel and glass balustrading created a contemporary feel to the space.
