A new waterside cafÃ©, designed by the Diana Crighton Good Taste Consultancy in Kingston upon Thames, has been opened by The Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust at
its centre in Washington, Tyne and Wear.
“The design of the cafÃ© is cool and simple – it is intended to reflect and complement a beautiful natural site,” says consultancy principal Diana Crighton.
The cafÃ© features natural beech furniture and a curved counter with aqua marine laminate, to reflect the movement of water, says a Washington Centre spokeswoman.
The wooden building, which has a grass roof, was constructed from a kit and overlooks a lake in 40ha of parkland, the spokeswoman adds.
Diana Crighton Good Taste Consultancy is also consultant for the Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust’s visitor centre at its new site in Barnes, south London, and its site in Slimbridge, Gloucestershire.
