Restaurant Design Associates (RDA) was tasked with creating a cafe interior design for a new Costa Coffee store at Blackpool’s world-famous Pleasure Beach.
Transforming the existing space – previously a steak house – the project presented a number of challenges, from working in a building of special interest to adhering to a timescale of just three weeks, ensuring an opening prior to the busy Bank Holiday.
The interior fit-out
The seating areas spanned two floors and careful consideration had to be taken in terms of ensuring synergy of the overall design. The interior fit-out was based on the latest Costa brand, and the brief required it to be both vibrant and modern. Installation involved considerable re-modelling as well as the removal of the existing steak bar equipment, including ventilation and extraction, to accommodate the Costa Coffee outlet.
