The Faraday Café

What makes you want to spend time in a cafe?

What is this?

What is this?

We want to look at spaces, places, architecture and design with fresh eyes – yours.

An essential question around the HCMA studios is: "What's Possible?" For a street? A community plan? A pool? A school? A...home page?

We post images and questions that relate to discussions around the studio. If you see something that sparks your curiosity, tell us what you think. You can check out other people's contributions too by viewing all responses.

A single comment, a debate or a consensus could cause a shift, that shifts everything.

Welcome to the conversation.

    Peacefulness. No loud, crowded spaces. I want to relax without loud/obnoxious top 40 playing overhead, I don't want anything but the sound of the coffee being made. I go to a cafe to read. Cafes are where people meet to talk. Basically, nothing makes me want to spend time in a cafe.

    An atmosphere where i can work/surf/catchup on emails for 30mins without being disturbed. A meeting place where i can catch up with friends and have reasonably private conversations. Enough background noise and space for private conversations, without struggling to hear what is being said. Comfortable lighting, pleasant smells, comfy seating, a suitably sized table, a range of food options - healthy snacks and treats, maybe some in-house soups. A location which is convenient to where I've just been, or am going next (meetings, shopping, walking).
