All in the detail

We are always pleased to find projects that retain original features and pay homage to a building’s past. Appareil Architecture have tastefully converted a dilapidated industrial facility into a stylish yet unpretentious restaurant that features fire pits, exposed concrete columns and red brick. Raw materials such as steel, wood and concrete were chosen to reference the spirit of the place. The architect’s have placed an open kitchen in the heart of the room to foster a lively atmosphere and create theatre for guests dining.

Noma Australia

Creating a narrative that gives context to a companies ethos, approach or geographical identity should be at the heart of any design project.  Through research, honesty to materials and process, Foolscap have managed to do just that in the design for the new Noma restaurant in Australia.  The design concept encapsulates the elemental quality of the vast Australian landscape – rugged oxidised earth, sweeping coastlines, open sky and the regeneration of native bushland through fire.

 

Frame and contain

‘These Islands takes the reader on a journey across the landscape, both natural and urban, that forms the British Isles, through powerful imagery, prose and poetry.’ We’ve been admiring the success and simplicity of the display systems at These Islands book launch for Cereal at the Sunspel retail store in London that frame and contain the clothing and large scale photographs by the talented Finn Beales.
