Lee Boyd were responsible for the design of the refurbished Café at the Edinburgh College of Art and led a team of consultants to design and deliver a flexible, multi-purpose space suitable for dining and for use out of hours for study or meeting.

New branding, graphics and bespoke furniture were designed to improve the customer experience and a new entrance door and terraced link formed to the courtyard to improve access and allow greater use of the outdoor space.

Tessa Giblin, Director of the Talbot Rice Gallery had this to say on the opening of the new cafe “Congratulations on the new ECA café! It’s brilliant: looks hip, yet durable, clear, yet chic-but-not-too-chic – perfect for ECA. And it was packed this lunchtime, with chat going on amongst colleagues, students, visitors: it’s exactly what ECA needed.”
