The Greenhouse Cafe
Injecting the laid back Californian cafe culture into Falmouth’s mix of trendy eateries. Serving fresh vegetarian inspired dishes, we set about designing a space that paired with the menu and reflected the brand’s focus on healthy living. Bringing together a playful mix of old and new, we utilised existing dark stained flooring and furniture, complementing them with texture and colour.
On entering, a grab and go bar made from recycled yogurt pots provides the perfect spot for a quick bite to eat. Bursts of greenery in the form of trailing vines and string of pearls hang from bespoke ceramics leading customers through the space into a light filled back room. Sage green wall panelling adds a sharp and clean contrast to woven bamboo pendants and sea grass matting, whilst muted Moroccan tiles echo something of the west coast beach culture. Bold abstract screen prints line the walls taking cues from something leafy that you might expect to see on your plate.
And when the weather is particularly Californian, customers can relax outside in the alfresco dining area with upholstered timber booths and yellow Tolix-style chairs tucked in amongst leafy planting.
