RDA was recently appointed by caterer Levy UK to bring a second store to life for Hej Coffee in the heart of London’s art and cultural hub, Somerset House.
The kitchen design house’s team worked with Levy UK, which partnered with Hej Coffee at this site, to create a new coffee shop within the venue, which overlooks the River Thames.
RDA’s team had to consider Somerset House’s listed status and chose colours such as dusty grey and duck egg from the Victorian colour palette. This was complimented with Hej’s brand identity of Tiffany Teal and black logo as well as ‘coffee quote’ signage on the walls.
The new counters were given a contemporary finish with statement tiles to the front and drop-in counter top chillers to allow for deli style displays of food and drinks. Equipment included a CED chilled multi deck.
Mathew Keech, CCO of Hej Coffee said: “‘From our initial meeting with Levy UK and RDA we were filled with confidence and felt that they really wanted to understand us and how we saw our brand.
“The end result speaks for itself, a sense of grandeur without losing the neighbourhood coffee shop feeling we value so much. We couldn’t be happier and look forward to our customers’ reaction to this beautiful space.”
Established in Bermondsey, Hej Coffee now also provides a workplace coffee service. The firm supplies everything for a barista style coffee at work to over 30 sites in blue chip companies throughout London and the South East.
