The bar features a bespoke 400mm wide/50mm deep copper top, which extends via a bull-nosed edge beyond the rough-rendered concrete bar front, which uses the same finish as the right-side wall. The bar back area is made up of a copper piping framework with glazed shelving. White-seated and timber-framed bar stools are by Normann Copenhagen, whilst the bar-surround flooring is in a series of dark and light grey hexagonal concrete tiles with bold red grouting. The chairs which accompany the four, right-side copper tables are in wicker, with black metal legs. Flooring in this area and throughout the remaining restaurant space is a sanded, aged and stained oak, giving the impression of being weathered and already in situ for some time. The dramatic feature lighting display over the bar includes glass pendants from Royal Copenhagen, whilst the two-sizes of alternating copper-andwood alternating pendant lighting to the rear of the restaurant are from Libra. The lighting in the semiscreened wine-store/dining areas is in the form of hand-blown, smoked glass pendants from Curiousa & Curiousa. Tables in the main restaurant space are in bespoke, patinated zinc, with natural wood and pale grey chairs from Hay, from the J104 series. There are also lower wicker chairs in the centre, as well as two bespoke sets of banquettes. The first of these runs down the whole length of the rear right space of the restaurant, below the pale salmon plaster wall and is made of a mild steel frame with light tan leather upholstery, whilst directly opposite on the left side is a series of three booth areas, where the banquette seating is finished in buttoned light blue leather. The ledge behind the booths is punctuated by small lemon trees in terracotta plants, further underlining the ‘outside-in’ feel. Two semi-private dining areas on the left of the restaurant are enclosed by floor-to-ceiling screens with mild steel frames and copper mesh and can each seat up to 6 people. Smaller versions of the screens also feature in other parts of the restaurant, above the leftside banquette seating, for example and to shield a waiter station to the right of the restaurant, helping add a subtly industrial and contemporary edge to the space. Empty, reclaimed riddling racks, sourced from France and traditionally used to house champagne, are used in these dining areas as a form of wall-panelling. The furniture treatment is also slightly different in these two rooms and includes bespoke bamboo table tops and black leather, steel-framed dining chairs from Rockett St George. The first of the areas, encased in an aged brick surround, also wraps neatly around the restaurant’s central service core, where the food hoist is located, along with a wine storage system built into its outside wall, featuring LED up-lighting and allowing full access from the bar area. Unisex toilets on the lower-ground floor continue the industrial feel, via Belfast basins and bespoke, surfacemounted taps and toilet roll holders made from copper piping. The space is tiled in white to the half-way point with very pale sea blue paintwork used from there to the ceiling. Flooring is the same hexagonal concrete tiling as used for the bar surround, but on this occasion minus the red grout. SPECIFIERS JOURNAL 91
