Limited Competition Entry for George Square, Glasgow 

The cafe both inside and out - our aesthetic inspiration comes from 'Nighthawks' by Edward Hopper, an image that completely dissolves the notion of a barrier between the inside and the outside; the life inside the cafe intertwines with the life of the city outside. The people inside become part of the street and the street life becomes part of the experience of the cafe. By day George Square will be part of the cafe interior, by night the glow of the interior will illuminate the public realm - a constantly changing vista both inside and out.
