Italian street food brand Sugo and Venezuelan arepa masters Guasa are among the six independent operators to launch at Greenwich Peninsula’s Design District Canteen when it opens next month.

First announced last year, the Design District is made up of 16 individual, architecturally-led buildings created by eight different architects in a one-hectare plot.

The Canteen food hall will be centred around a transparent structure (pictured) created by lauded Spanish architects Jose Selgas and Lucia Cano, and has been designed to 'emulate a European square through a modern lens'.

Six operators in total will take up residency within the space, which also features a bar area managed by former Burger & Lobster bartender and manager Dawid Sowinski.

Alongside Sugo and Guasa, the traders set to feature at the Canteen include Malaysian street food brand Eat Lah; Eastern Mediterranean-focused operator Ehla; North East Indian street eats concept Raastawala; and Brighton-based sandwich slinger Toasted, which specialises in meats and cheeses sourced from The Great British Charcuterie Co.

The Canteen Bar will offer cocktails made local ingredients, alongside a list of wines, spirits and soft drinks. Craft beers will be available on tap and by the bottle, and will feature a house lager brewed nearby by the Meantime brewery.

Spearheaded by local developers Knight Dragon and offering 134,000 sq ft of workspace, the Design District is intended to bring together creative from a number of different fields including art, tech, food and music.
