  • 28 august 2008

Studio Myerscough and Luke Morgan have transformed an old railway carriage into something of a local hotspot. The Deptford Project Café is a retired rail car that has been brightened up with licks of luminous paint, retro song lyrics, a bathroom dedicated to Elvis and endearing sayings like ‘I saved this for you’ on the seats of their stools.
As if that wasn’t friendly enough, they also serve locally sourced food and farmed coffee, along with putting on art shows, barbecues and a weekend creative market that showcases art, design, music and film. The Café is the first bold step in a regeneration project to inject some life back in the Deptford Train Station area.
Studio Myerscough are also known for London’s Largest Living Room at Somerset House earlier this year as well as exhibitions in the Science Museum, The Barbican and the London Design Museum.
