The Deptford Project...

|


London seems to be going through a massive creative renaissance at the moment and im loving it! The Deptford Project is a creative program situated in the old railway yard of Deptford Station, (which I found out is the city's oldest passenger only station). To be redeveloped into a new public square by Alison Brooks Architects in 2010, the old railyard and a listed Victorian carriage ramp will serve as a home for a series of art, design, music and film programs.



The first phase of the Deptford Project was seen earlier last month in the form of a repurposed train carriage. Executed by designer Morag Myerscough, the 1960s carriage has been transformed into a cafe serving up sustainably harvested coffee and locally sourced foodstuffs. The exterior, which also serves as a billboard for the project, has been graffitied with graphics reflecting the neighborhood's unique history. A light-filled interior, complete with custom furniture and vibrant light fixtures, will make for the perfect refuge when the rainy season returns.
