A new fine dining Italian restaurant in a prominent central London location, just off the Strand and in the heart of the theatre district. We combined 2 eateries to create a single large restaurant, with a full interior re-configuration, new stair, kitchen and back of house. The façade of the period building was fully restored with new windows and signage. For the interior the starting point was a steel framed glazed wine store and end grain ash bar top, which then set up the aesthetic across both floors.
We were inspired by this historic corner building, which was restored to its former glory externally, while internally a simple palette of functional materials allow the existing fabric to shine through. The upper floor is centred around the feature bar and wine store, while the lower floor is more intimate with a connection to the open kitchen.
