The Living Room W1

 

 

Location: 3–9 Heddon Street, London W1

Client: Living Ventures Ltd.

Completion: November 2005

Brief: To design a casual modern English restaurant and bar to reflect the “Living Room” idea

Starting point: Three floors of raw space with no façade on the ground floor, previously occupied by a post sorting office

 

This restaurant has three floors: ground floor which house a more informal dining area at the front and a piano lounge and a bar at the rear. First floor has a more quiet yet informal dining space with dividing blinds that provide further intimacy if so required and an open catering kitchen. Basement with customer’s toilettes and back of house. There are many elements that are associated with a domestic space. But they have been distorted or made abstract.
