We were briefed to create a relaxed, fun environment, but given the pedigree of the chefs and the staff we knew the space needed a level of polish. To achieve the brief we’ve looked to contrasts, in materiality, texture and colour. The roughness of the bartop is offset by the upholstered bolsters of the bench seats opposite, whilst the existing brick is complemented both visually and acoustically with linen curtains throughout the space. Taking pride of place at the front of the restaurant is our ‘surfboard’ communal table, the high gloss white specifically designed as a standalone piece which pulls the venue together, a mascot of sorts floating in the lagoon. Another collaboration with our good friends Never Now.
