Restaurant & Bar Design Awards Shortlist 2015: Heritage
The Restaurant & Bar Design Awards category for a Restaurant or Bar in a Heritage Building is a UK category with a shortlist of just seven entries. Heritage buildings in the UK provide a unique challenge to designers with planning and alteration restrictions on listed buildings. The entries shortlist is featured below.
GBK (Glasgow) faced challenges in creating inviting and intimate dining spaces while retaining the grandeur of the original space.
The design sought to create contrasts between surviving plush elements of furniture and finishes, set against a gradual stripping back and burning through to the structure beyond. Moreno:masey were the interior designers for this project in a former listed bank building.
The challenge of George’s fish and chip kitchen in Nottingham was to make the most of the listed building, whilst adding the restaurant’s personality; a fun, family friendly concept into a listed building.
WC in London has used as much of the original décor as possible from the mosaic floor to the old attendants office which formes the bar area. Designed by Jayke Mangion & Andy Bell this former public convenience is a new talking point in the city.
