A new cafe in the student union at London’s Royal College of Art is a playful, whimsical wooden structure that sits inside a larger room. It was designed and constructed in three months by architecture graduates Percy Weston, Tom Surman, and Joseph Deane, who have since launched their own studio called Weston Surman & Deane Architecture.

Dezeen reports that they used refined scaffolding boards to create a wooden framework around the walls and sanded down reclaimed parquet flooring. The dining area features mismatched classroom chairs and wooden tables.
