Kenward Trust


Client Brief

Our client Kenward Trust wanted a respectful bespoke Café Counter area and the social lounge refurbished to be more inviting and impactful on the residents. The Conference Centre can be accessed by local business so a more “lounge” feel was needed


About Our Client


Kenward Trust are a charity founded in 1968 by Christian people who were concerned about the plight of people needing help. The Charity works to transform the lives of people, providing alcohol and substance rehabilitation and recovery services for men and women that helps address substance misuse and homelessness issues, bringing hope, help and support.

Their services are currently based in Kent and East Sussex.

Initial Meeting – Design Brief


When initially consulting with Kenward Trust we proposed a café interior design that upgraded the current café decorations with some bespoke solutions such as the new counter. Our 3D designs and space plans helped our client on visualising their new healthcare and leisure interiors and brought a new perspective to the table.


Our Solution


The most notable areas of this leisure fit out were the feature fireplace and the colours used that complimented the overall design. The new café fit out implemented a nice blend of contemporary and vintage themes that contrasted one another.

The most notable vintage element was the style of the café furniture solutions which resonated well with the pastel colours of the farrow & ball paint used. The choice of paints also went well with the historic building, fitting well with the vintage style.


Kenward Trust - 3D Visualisation & Refurbishment Comparison


The café furniture was intentionally made to give off that ‘mix & match’ feel through the leisure refurbishment so there was a further contrast of contemporary and vintage, but also making sure with keeping a blend of the two as opposed to going overboard with one particular style.

A bespoke counter with panelling and shelving was implemented into the café area with a Corian worktop which included both glass and metal shelving.


The main concern during this refurbishment was retaining some of the original look within the café space. We wanted to make sure that certain features such as the fireplace and window shutters were unharmed during the leisure refurbishment and did so successfully.

Overall Rap Interiors provided a high quality café design and fit out that developed upon the overall look of the café and worked alongside it, as opposed to tarnish it.
