Using CNC machines to reproduce a one-thousand-year-old style of Japanese joinery.
With strong references to the original Tea Building and British manufacturing and design of the mid-20th century, Lyle’s has an uncomplicated, simple aesthetic which we are very taken with. B3 designers have chosen to highlight the architectural features of the Tea Building using a modern palette of materials to great strength. Poured concrete flooring with white crackle glazed tiles and painted brick create a sophisticated, yet un-intimidating space where people can relax and dine. The attention to joinery details is present throughout with subtle contrasts in woods using rich Iroko and warm oaks. Nods to quality British designers such as the reclaimed Ercol stick back chairs gives the design longevity and authenticity.
