In late 2007 Lee Boyd worked on two fit out projects for Coffee Republic who were establishing their presence in Edinburgh and Scotland in general.
St Andrew’s Square: Working with the consultants designing the pavilion, a complimentary fit out was conceived to create a facility to support the newly landscaped square, whilst upholding the brand identity of Coffee Republic.
Since it opened this franchise has had extraordinary success and the square has become a vibrant and active space in the heart of the city.
The Gyle Shopping Centre: This project created a standalone pod occupying free space in the concourse to the mall that was supported by a small seating area. The bold design reflects the strength of the brand and enables shoppers to have coffee and light snacks prepared insitu.
Unfortunately the franchisee struggled to compete with other established outlets in the mall and was forced to close down.
