Lake City is located in an involved community, sitting right inside lake Albert suburb, this area is surrounded by families and working middle class suburbia. From observing the shopping centre we noticed a lot of youth loitering about. This immediately raised concern for me about the overall aesthetic and problems of the area. It seems the youth are left to sit around the area with nothing to do or a lack of suitable hangouts.
To be put forward, the proposal of a cafe for Lake Village Shopping centre. Through extensive research, we have discovered the potential it holds and decided that due to the high youth population in the area, that itâ€™d be interesting idea to create a cafe influenced by music culture and vintage aesthetics.
