When SHH set out to renovate the existing café at Hatfield House in North London, their aim was to create a space that would better serve their ever increasing flow of visitors. The restaurant is now situated within the 19th Century coach house adjoining the estate’s new retail outlets. Completed in 2011, the Coach House was the winner of the best café or fast food venue in the 2012 Restaurant & Bar Design Awards.
Whilst the majority of the products and furnishings were sourced from British manufacturers, there is one exception. These hand-blown, coloured glass pendant lights from New Yorkers Niche Modern are a striking feature in an otherwise traditional space. Lined up neatly below them are Tom Dixon’s Offcut stools in untreated oak.
