LOT & transit | 伦敦皇家艺术学院咖啡厅改造
to coincide with the 250th anniversary of the royal academy of arts, london, the RA cafe in the grade II listed burlington house has been reimagined by LOT and transit studio. this architectural and interior design collaboration has resulted in a lighter and brighter space inside the royal academy, as well as a new outdoor bar for use in the summer months.
the new café is inspired by the surrounding murals, particularly the bright colors of ‘upstairs and downstairs’ by leonard rosoman royal academician. it has been created it as a warm and welcoming space that has its own identity but feels part of the gallery and art school it sits within.
the main space has been opened up to provide better access to a range of service areas and eliminate the queuing issues that plague popular cultural venues. LOT and transit studio have selected a variety of rich and playful materials to use across the space to define an informal setting that will delight the academy visitors while they take a break from the busy galleries. bespoke communal dining tables and ledges create a unified design language across the café and inspire interactions between guests, while a ten-seat table in the lobby – comprised of terrazzo and marble with a circular pattern – can be used for large groups or solo diners.
