Coupdeville Architect’s brief was to create a 50m2, LA style, healthy eating with an urban feel coffee shop/juice bar/deli that allowed walk in customers and a relaxed environment for people to come and sit/work in. Coupdeville Architects have created a warm but chic overall style with a touch of the industrial feel, partly re-using the existing finishes and materials such as concrete and timber.
The use of reclaimed materials has created a blend of old and new and added this warm, relaxed feel to the space. Co-founders of The Good Life Eatery, Yasmine Larizadeh and Shirin Kouros, have brought London a slice of LA cool with The Good Life Eatery – a quick healthy bite with hearty salads, gluten-free baked treats, American-style sandwiches and London’s first free-standing cold-pressed juice bar.

Coupdeville Architects was formed in 2005 by Jerome Keam, Pravin Muthiah and Giles Lovegrove. All three partners share a passion for designing innovative and environmentally friendly buildings, which respond to brief and context whilst producing unique design solutions. Coupdeville Architects’ ethos is the adaption, transformation and creation of buildings with a portfolio of work including a variety of projects, including new build and refurbishment residential projects, retail spaces, galleries and hotels.
Whilst the projects are mainly concentrated in the South East of England, recent work includes projects in Kenya and Los Angeles. The practice offers a flexible team who respond quickly, creatively and intelligently to brief and budget. They offer a fully comprehensive service from conception to completion. Over the course of various projects a pool of capable and cost effective contractors has been built up, and the practice offers an in-house construction team.
