Here is a nice example of urban regeneration: MVMNT Café is a temporary pop-up café, part of the redevelopment of the Greenwich industrial estate in London, England. Cheerful and welcoming, the unconventional gathering space is a wonderful addition to its industrial neighborhood.
Some containers, pots of paint and the vision of British artist Morag Myerscough were enough to get this place up and running in no time. The presence of wood throughout contributes to a friendly, informal atmosphere. Here is a statement from the designers: “An amazing team lead by the Danny Elphick worked tirelessly on the construction of the cafe whilst Morag’s team went about creating a beautiful entrance to the Royal Borough of Greenwich, using the words from Shipping Good, a poem written for the MVMNT by official Olympic poet Lemn Sissay about Greenwich, on a colorful hoarding down the length of Waller Way“. The café was opened in time for the Olympics, an event which brought in thousands of people (source: Contemporist).
