a very sweet modern and interesting cafe

Polished steel cafe adds distinction to Morecambe sea front 

Arca’s Silver Cafe is now complete providing a distinctive new landmark for Morecambe in the UK. The new cafe and public toilets were commissioned by regeneration body 'Winning Back Morecambe', part of Lancaster City Council.

Central to the design are window panels that span the length of the building on both the front and back. A silver stainless steel band wraps the space, framing views of Morecambe Bay through its glazed facades and withstanding the harsh marine climate. This shiny organic form acts as a 'full stop' to the western end of the seafront.

Raised on a series of terraces, the pavilion sits above the sea-defence, and provides a south-facing outdoor seating area for use by the café. In use, the cafe seating can spill out to occupy the various levels of the terracing, animating the public space around. For the toilets, robust matt painted steel with warmer oak hardwood doors and fittings are used.
