Inspiring Stuff - The Movement Café

by Startacus Admin

The Movement CafeSometimes you don’t need a thousand words - like the saying goes, the pictures paint the story.

Some of you may have seen these pictures already; however we just love The Movement Café, the pop up cafe that was built in 16 days to be ready in time for the Olympics this Summer.

Based on the edge of an industrial estate in Greenwich, London, and the visual entry to a regeneration project for the Borough, designer Morag Myerscough has created a wonderful and escapist space, in an otherwise industrial urban regeneration area.

It’s a demonstration of what you can achieve with a bit of cash and a lot of inspiration, and for that reason alone we wanted to share this temporary creative space with you. Apart from the design, there are regular performances and readings that add to the creative ‘feel’.

We understand that this temporary pop up cafe will remain open until December, so if you are out and about in London over the next while, we reckon you should pop in for a visit if you get the chance. Check out the pics below for a bit of inspiration...

P.S. If you know of any inspiring places that Startacus should be looking at - do let us know!
