City Retreat, Leicester is a TEAMS charity initiative, focused on tackling local poverty and homelessness. The City Retreat provides warm shelter, a community foodbank as well as space for education, careers guidance, mentoring and counselling. To expand the retreat, TEAMS’ seeks to create a 2,000 sq ft café space including fully equipped kitchen and outdoor courtyard. With a brief to create a hub for the community, the design features exposed brick walls, refurbished wooden floor boards, reclaimed furniture, hanging ceiling garden and 1950s advertising inspired décor. Bi-fold doors lead to the outdoor space.
