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.

    Staff that are just flirty enough that i could be like yo, does she want my number? but then when you give her your number, she shuts you down totally. she wasn't flirting thats just her personality. So you avoid the place a couple weeks, cause you're embarassed, but you go back and shes all, hey we missed you! which makes you feel more dejected, and you didnt even want the coffee. SO now you're stuck with feelings of shame, embarassment and feel really silly about yourself, and your thinking all this while you drink rather unimpressive coffee and feeling sorry for your lonely self. You'll probably drink and cry yourself to sleep again tonight, and start tomorrow with that same bland coffee because its the only human interaction you have all day.

    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).
