The fine trio of ‘Red Deer Architects’ combined their creative juices with their usual blend of artistic cool and understated charm. Located in the heart of east London, this all-day brasserie and bar, opened in September 2014, is the product of the design of the architecture studio Red Deer in collaboration with Bourne & Hollingsworth’s creative team and Box 9.
The aim was creating a worn interior reminiscent of an old European socialites stately house with. Following this idea, the 220sqm space was elegantly filled with elements like custom ironwork shelving, cane benches, wrought iron chairs, rich upholstery and classic cornicing; with the light textures of whitewashed floorboards, fine oak, mirror and white marble as background.
There are five different spaces: the Bottle Room, a 14-person dining room with floor-to-ceiling antique display cabinets; the cocktail bar, on the sunny west-facing side of the building, featuring a customised mosaic bar top over cast concrete panels; the café area, with winged mahogany wicker chairs and high-backed sofas; the restaurant and the greenhouse, beautifully sunlight flooded and created out of an existing dark alley.
