One of my biggest restaurant interior design jobs to date.
10,000 square feet of an abandoned nightclub ready to be turned into a casual dining restaurant.
I kept the natural divisions in the space so that it broke up its vast expanse! With these divisions I installed slightly different concepts: the main floor was to have more of an industrial feel to work with the existing concrete floor, the bar area was softened with different textiles, furniture and props and the raised balcony was given a more outdoor, patio feel as it was the only wall that had windows!
All materials and sub-contractors were sourced by me; I worked with a joiner to have all the tables made bespoke and collaborated with the electricians as, most lighting elements were made bespoke. All chairs were made-to-order and customized as well as having custom sign writing throughout.
For the bar area, I had a bespoke luggage shelving unit made – one of my favourite parts of an interiors job is to go to antique fairs and markets to source various pieces and props. I loved sourcing the luggage and other bits for this!
What’s your favourite part of the design or decorating process?!
