Challenges

constraints of the building being listed.

Results

The scheme leaves the original features intact and the design is
an insertion of new elements to contrast with the existing fabric of
the building. The buildings heritage is reflected in the use of the
chevron pattern which draws its inspiration from the insignia on
military uniforms. Bespoke tables in solid oak have the chevron

London Bar / Topolski (London) / B3 Designers

Brief

The brief was to turn this 370 square metre arch space into a
venue that allowed visitors to enjoy Felix Topolskis artworks.
This was to incorporate a counter bar and seating for Company
of Cooks food offer whilst creating an aesthetic that reflected
Topolskis utilitarian artistic approach.

Challenges

The main challenge was designing a method of displaying the


huge artworks in a way that would honour the artist and his
utilitarian approach. Choosing furniture and materials were also
carefully done to represent the functional character of the bar.

Results

With self-supporting scaffolding structure within the arches to


hold and display Topolskis artwork, this new industrial, raw style-
looking gallery truly celebrates Felix Topolskis work. The bar top
itself is made from reclaimed school desks whose surfaces are
covered in graffiti. The back of the arch celebrates the Topolski
Chronicles; hand sketched accounts of iconic figures, politics and
events throughout the 20th Century.

Brief

To redesign the existing ground floor restaurant and bar area,


retaining lunch and dinner custom and increasing all-day trading.
The basement area was underutilised, so the design needed
to increase footfall and capacity by creating an attractive,
defined offer.

Challenges

The ground floor bar and restaurant areas were slightly below
street level and landlocked between a church and tall office
buildings. Although there were many windows, it felt dark and
soulless. There was no visual connection between the ground
floor and basement room, and a network of bland corridors and

Challenges

All of the loose furniture including table and chairs are all bespoke
designs within the restaurant. Our biggest challenge was
developing the new family of furniture chair, dim sum stool, bar
stool, and tables with our manufactures in China and streamlining
the prototypes before launching.

Results

The design references the intriguing and traditional side of old


China and the juxtaposition between the two. Focusing on the
urban side of Shanghai chic, through both modern and 1930s
interpretation. The new concept has a distinctly different feel to
its sister restaurants from the more elegant bespoke furniture and

Challenges

Designing for a Grade II listed building, all insertions are non-


structural and non-intrusive linings, installed with careful detailing
to respect and accentuate the existing building fabric. The
challenge was to create an overarching design language for
three distinct areas Martini Bar, Dining Room and Club Room
whilst accentuating the exceptional character of the building and
celebrating its glamorous and decadent history.

Results

The Martini Bars ornate focal point is a gold-mirrored, brass-clad


bar with a faceted, smoked gold mirror backdrop cut with the
repeat abstracted motif of a Martini glass. A dynamic installation
of suspended sculptural lights animates the double-height space.
Seating options include a 6.6 metre onyx sharing table, as well as
upholstered banquettes tucked under a canopy of sumptuous teal

Restaurant or Bar in a hotel / Ametsa with Arzak Instruction (London) / Ab Rogers Design

Brief

To create a space dedicated to the celebration and enjoyment of


exquisite food. It was important that the restaurant be flexible and
able to work with the addition of a private dining room to the main
dining area or as one singular restaurant. It needed to dovetail
with existing architecture but also to act as an oasis in the centre
of the hotel and provide a stage where the food can perform.

Challenges

To create a space with a strong functional flow that supports and


enhances the consumption of exquisite food. To make sure that
the diner can see, smell and taste the food without distraction
whilst the front of house effortless operates the space around
them. Ultimately it is to create a strong identity for the restaurant
and a memorable experience for the diners.

Results

A wave-like ceiling, created from seven thousand delicate glass


receptacles filled with vibrantly coloured spices, form a warm
glittering canopy. Mirrors along one wall are engraved with
illustrations of the spices hanging above. Large perforated doors
partially screen the restaurant from the entrance while an angled
oak floor invites diners inside. Lacquered walls create a calm
interior where the food shines.

Restaurant or Bar in another space / The Magazine (London) / Zaha Hadid Architects

Brief

The Magazine, a grade II* listed building in Kensington Gardens


built around 1805 was originally designed as a Gunpowder
Store, hence the name, Magazine. The architectural vision for
the building was for a lightweight contemporary extension, to
be sensitively positioned adjacent to the historic structure. The
intention was that the extension should have the feel of a pavilion
rather than a more substantial form.

Challenges

The new Magazine extension needed to contain a generous, open


social space that should enliven the Serpentine Sackler Gallery as
a new cultural and culinary destination. The new extension had to
be designed to complement the calm and solid classical building
with a light, transparent, dynamic and distinctly contemporary
space of the 21st century.

Results

The new addition of the 19th century gunpowder store in Hyde


Park is one of the most inspiringly beautiful dining rooms in
London, in Europe, in the world. Its like eating inside some great
mythical animals exoskeleton just breath-taking and definitely
the place to bring someone who has no conversation. You can

d-raw with the brief of turning the existing Brutons Bar into the
living room of the fictional character of Phileas Fogg, the main
character in the 1873 Jules Verne novel Around the world in
eighty days.

Challenges

The challenge of this project was to produce a convincing


environment depicting the life of Phileas Fogg in his home without
making it look too set design. The customer is encouraged
to stay and experience the same delight and enthusiasm for
travelling as Jules Vernes novel did for generations.

Results

D-raw cooked a late 19th century interior by stripping back the


existing bar into a large room, increasing the ceiling height and
dressing the existing walls and columns with Victorian panelling
and a large library wall. A central fireplace, a bar, a Victorian
cornice, ceiling rose and a herringbone floor where installed.
All the space was rewired to provide power to traditional lighting
in order to recreate the grand living room of the period.

Decorative Lighting / Aluminium Flower Garden (Japan) / Moriyuki Ochiai Architects

Brief

We designed a bar named Flower around the theme of a flower.


Origami which is a unique Japanese art changes its forms into
various things from a single sheet of paper. Taking inspiration from www.halo.co.uk
this, we used a single finite material aluminium as a simple planar
surface from which we created an engaging three-dimensional
space that fulfils various functions and requirements.

Challenges

A sheet of aluminium, a recyclable material as thin and flexible as


paper, spreads across the ceiling as it fills the space with its light
and airy presence. Changes to the size and density of the flower
petals impart the function and atmosphere suited to each area,
such as lively and quiet areas created through minute differences
in the height and expanse of a given space.

Results

Ones position and angle of vision as well as the reflection


of images and lights from the mirrors on the walls concur to
perpetually redefine the appearance of the whole space, thus
enabling the viewer to experience a space with transient and
diverse atmospheres. The layering of minutely differing areas
throughout the space gives people the opportunity to find an
oasis of comfort at their own leisure.

Sao Paulo, Brazil represents the first bar in the Americas and is
part of an ambitious global expansion plan for the company which
is again the UKs fastest growing food and drink company with www.dcch.co.uk
annual average growth of 167%.

Challenges

The building was a former garage and mechanics workshop. Its


industrial features were perfect for the BrewDog concept. The
staircase section of the building was stripped of its cladding to
reveal a raw concrete tower. The remainder of the facade has
untreated steel sheets riveted to steel channels. Sliding / folding
doors create a wide welcoming entrance. The front outside area
features walls made from raw timber shuttered concrete.

Results

The outside represents BrewDogs revolutionary pub brand ethos,

located in an elongated corridor space which is to became the
centre of attention providing the guests an alternative environment www.conceptbars.com

Challenges

As far as we know this is the first ceramic bar of its kind. This fully
operation bar weighs 1.8 tons. The wall sculpture spans for over
12 meters, made of 1854 pressed aluminium triangles, weighs
only 200 kg. The bar designed with Laufen products with a
changeable top which enables them to replace the top trays with
new products. The ceramic bar top acts as a fantastic insulating
material and does not transfer the cold temperature from the
ice trays.

Results

The all-white installation is a simple play between defined


geometrical forms and abstract structures. A series of aluminium
triangular wall sculptures grow from the floor and surround
the lounge. In contrast to this organic shape, the geometrical
minimalistic V shaped bar is constructed from 64 ceramic shelves
and sinks. A simple shape made of this majestic material has
concealed lights on each shelve which gives it a linear and
floating look.

Caf / Industry Beans (Australia) / Figureground Architecture

Brief

The brief was for a flagship venue for the Industry Beans coffee
label within a 200 square metre factory shell. The venue required
a caf dining area, commercial kitchen, external covered seating,
administration and also commercial roasting facilities including
cupping and coffee bean storage areas.

Challenges

The main challenge for us was how to transform a vast industrial


shell into an inviting and comfortable space on a limited budget.
Located on a backstreet in a semi-industrial neighbourhood it was
also important that there was a streetscape presence that could
attract the attention of passing clientele. The proposal needed
to have an inventive and resourceful nature to reflect the clients
creative approach to food and coffee.

Results

Stacking the staff and admin areas above the kitchen and
service counter, we essentially created a building within a
building. Internally, the double height pallet faade gives the
sense of entering an intimate laneway space - something that
is quintessentially Melbourne. Both internal faade and front
polycarbonate faade feature pivoting and flipping panels to
create a playful habitation while naturally ventilating the
warehouse space.

alley, stretched across 500m of space, leading to the spectacle
of a frenzied, frenetic kitchen, where the eye glimpses enigmatic

Miss Ko intrigues and challenges the mind.

Lighting Scheme / Hutong Shard (London) / Into Lighting & David Yeo
Which will your
diners prefer?
Brief

To realise the clients vision for a theatrical and dynamic lighting


scheme for this fine dining panoramic restaurant on Level 33
of The Shard. All elements of the lighting scheme needed to
be carefully controlled to ensure a dramatic and intimate feel to
the venue was maintained whilst minimising reflections in the
perimeter glass to ensure uninhibited views for diners.

Challenges

The lighting was to evolve throughout the day and night to


enhance the function of each space whilst keeping glare and
reflections in the vast amount of perimeter glass to a minimum.
With so much perimeter glass we could not clearly calculate the
amount of glare and inter reflection of light so we carried out
extensive night-time mock ups on site so we could evaluate any
reflections with the interior designer and client.

Results

The client feels we have achieved a very theatrical low glare


lighting scheme which provides minimal reflections in the glass
perimeter meaning diners can enjoy the breathtaking views across
London. The lighting design retains the element of theatre even at
lunchtime when the restaurant is flooded with natural light through
the perimeter glazing.

Challenges

We designed this space with a new space concept Boutique

Lexus, not an ordinary showroom. We tried to make a space
where itself can communicates the brand philosophy and creates
a certain mood combined with cafe and restaurant area, even if
there is no car exhibited. That was a big challenge and goal upon
designing this space.

Results

Asia Restaurant / Tsukimichi (Japan) / Spinifex

Brief

Tsukimichi is located on the top of a building in an area in


Fukuoka where established Japanese restaurants gather along a
river. In order to differentiate from existing restaurants, modern
Japan was chosen as the concept for the operation and design
of the restaurant. A modern style of guests entering with their
membership card is used, and modern tastes are applied
throughout, from the cooking to utensils, furnishings and staff
costumes.

Challenges

The design creates a modern Japanese space where nostalgic


and futuristic mingle. Minimal and sharp shapes are used on
materials that invoke nostalgic feeling, while techniques such as
overlaying with classic patterns are used on futuristic elements.
Different aspects appear at each turn in the central pathway.
Symbols representing the moon, the image from the restaurant
name Tsukimichi (moon path), are used throughout the restaurant
as well.

Results

By subliming the concept of modern Japan on both operation


and design, Tsukimichi has created an original and new
hospitality space. It creates a unique atmosphere that can be
described as neo established Japanese, a place that pursues
quality rather than casual. We believe this place has gone
beyond a mere differentiation from surrounding competitors; it is
a fresh wind attracting new customers in a field that is becoming
obsolete.
Elegant and simple, from the colours to
the shapes, creating a calm yet cool feel.

inspired.

Challenges

To fill a 1000m empty shell on a modest budget required a


unique approach. The warehouse was used to construct details in
advance whilst obtaining permits. Lighting design uses shadows
and colour to fill voids, and give accents. A palate of simple, often
recycled, low cost materials and basic construction techniques
was used to give a hand crafted feeling of texture, tactility and
warmth.

Results

The concept is a theatrical fantasy world based on an abstract


urban forest. There is no clear delineation between inside and
outside, with sunlight and greenery throughout. Abstract steel
plant forms and natural finishes enhance the expansive, yet
intimate, relaxed garden atmosphere. A rich variety of spaces

Europe Restaurant / Les Haras (France) / Jouin Manku

Brief

Marc Haeberlins brasserie occupies the former Royal Stables, a


building classified as an historic monument both inside and out.
It boasts 800m of exceptional interior space, 13.5m high and
crowned with an unusually beautiful original timber roof structure.

Challenges

Working within the restrictions of the site, the project concentrates


specifically on conserving existing details. Jouin Manku wanted to
expose the fabric of the building, to show off the timber frame and
joists, to retain the original render upstairs, reuse the floor tiles and
play around with the grand doors to create an entrance lobby. As
a direct response to the monumentality of the site, Jouin Mankus
design plays with a sense of scale and light.

Results

It is important for the visitor to be able to take stock of the


exceptional historic dimension of the site without feeling dwarfed
by it. They have employed a series of creative and spectacular
devices to help define areas within the building. Conversely,
the palette of raw and natural materials is deliberately limited:
blackened raw steel, patinated zinc, unfinished oak, and full hide
leather are the four materials used in the restaurant.

Middle East & Africa Restaurant / Topolopompo (Israel) / Baranowitz Kronenberg Architecture

Brief

Topolopompo is a fire kitchen restaurant inspired by the exotic


culinary traditions of the East. Its fire is omnipresent not only in
every single dish but also physically as a prominent and active
participant in space. Topolopompo alludes to a tribal bonfire
seating of old where tales and myths crystallized into indigenous
cultural heritage.

Challenges

The design challenge was mainly to express its character inspired


by the landscapes of the East; landscapes of fertile valleys, rice
terraces and mountain tops, celebrating this morphology and
introducing abundant possibilities for social gatherings along the
route from the valley to the mountain top.

Results

These social landscapes are dominated by a mythical Fire


Dragon, the spirit behind Topolopompo. While it hovers all
around the space veiling with its translucent golden tail the
different landscapes, its movement brings about a rich sense
of layering, mystery and ever changing presence of a primordial
experience. Topolopompo is made of Bamboo wood and Lava
stone, both incarnate the eternal presence and importance of
nature in our life.
