MKA designed the conversion of an existing Paper shop into a new Cafe for Dame Kelly Holmes. Ms Holmes wanted to provide a vibrant and accessible meeting place for local people in Hildenborough where she grew up.
The site is in a Conservation Area and planning negotiations were protracted and we ultimately achieved permission to convert and extend existing Victorian buildings into a new café, providing a modern community focus and meeting place.
MKA designed the exterior of the building and laid out all the interior spaces. Following planning permission MKA provided a detailed working drawing package for others to run-on-site. the interior design was by John Barnett Designs.
The success of this community destination has gone from strength to strength over the years following its completion.
