Millennium Point is a thriving commercial centre in Birmingham’s Eastside district, and houses major visitor attractions as well as being home to several faculties of Birmingham City University and Birmingham Metropolitan College. The scheme saw the redevelopment of the former café, which had sat vacant for a number of months, located next to the main entrance to the Thinktank Science Museum on the second floor of the Millennium Point complex, so had great potential. The transformation of the space provided much needed facilities and a new seating area for the public to utilise.
The refurbishment provided a new café space, storage room and kitchen, which formed the new premises for 6/8 Kafe, as well as new WC facilities and a seating area to the main concourse. The design of the project aimed to provide modern, inspiring spaces, coordinating the clean, modern aesthetic of Millennium Point with the artisan inspired ethos of the 6/8 Kafe brand.
