John Bull Café
Plymouth University campus café
John Bull Café is an area of social gathering and studies apart from being just a café and restaurant. It sits in the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Plymouth, next to Derriford Hospital, the largest in the region. The idea of the refurbishment was to create a fresh space for students and doctors with a limited budget. The Guerrilla Spaces, as the University calls the collaborative areas, were rearranged and new bespoke slim wooden panels were installed to separate the study area from the café, but at the same time keeping them linked. Stylish but subtle aesthetics of the new furniture agree with the proposal, new elegant colours were introduced and a soft seating area was added giving it a more casual option for the users.
