Connected to The Phoenix Art Space in Brighton, Canvas Coffee opened as a cafe for resident artists and the public to meet. It was designed and branded to create a cohesive space between the coffee shop and the gallery spaces, influencing the name, and allowing for artist to showcase their work within Canvas. 

The goal was to convert the former entrance of the art studio building into coffee shop, allowing for more consistent engagement with the public. The design separates itself from the popular rustic look of most Brighton coffee shops, instead using sleek custom steel structures, custom concrete counter, and custom light fittings.
