The Nook @ Krowji

Nestled in the centre of Krowji, Cornwall’s largest creative hub, The Nook has opened its doors. Quay Studio were commissioned on behalf of Krowji to pull the scheme together in a very short time frame helping with the spacial, interior and lighting design on this scheme working along side the Hungry Horsebox Co.

Quay Studio provided spacial layouts, rendered elevations including joinery, furniture, finishes and fittings proposals and lighting layouts.

The Hungry Horsebox Co. already have a successful mobile beach cafe at Gwithian offering outstanding food in a beautiful location and The Nook is their latest venture. The Nook will offer the same fresh attitude and philosophy alongside fresh, local and tasty produce.

The existing space at Krowji although unique and artistic was dark and needed a refresh reflective of the new catering offering.

The space was stripped back to expose original features such as the timber flooring and the beautiful sash windows. Keeping the new design minimal and clean was essential to work with and be sympathetic to the buildings architecture. Rustic timber and raw metal finishes ensured that the space felt natural, warm and welcoming but not over powering.

The proposal of antique mirror to the wall opposite the windows allowed natural light to reflect into the room and create an openness in the space. Feature pendants were then used to highlight specific key areas.

This is the perfect space to meet, socialise or relax surrounded by creative people and great food.

The Nook is open from 8am - 5pm, Monday to Friday. Breakfast, brunch, tea, coffee, cake and well behaved dogs welcome. What more could you want!
