For this project the client’s style vision was ‘1950s Poland’. The restaurant needed to be edgy and contemporary, while also being personable and relaxed; so that it felt like a home. “The upstairs space seats just 30, so achieving flexibility for different events while retaining an intimate feel was key. To do this, we used warm metallic finishes and made everything bespoke, including copper-wrapped tables that can be bolted in different places and stackable chairs,” explains Gemma. Another part of balancing a flexible working restaurant space with a residential look was down to the choice of appliances. “The owners didn’t want a kettle, big commercial appliances or bottles of water on display; there needed to be no clutter with more of a personal vibe,” says Gemma, who as an alternative decided to install two HydroTaps. “We specify them a lot in residential projects and have a HydroTap Arc in the studio here, which we all absolutely love, so I was happy to recommend.”View Range
“We put in a HydroTap All-in-One in chrome upstairs in the restaurant, with a 1950s kitchenette cupboard to conceal the unit and make it look more residential. Staff can serve filtered chilled or sparkling water and use the instant boiling water to make simple hot drinks like coffee and tea.” On the lower floor Greedo holds private and pop-up events, so Gemma re-defined the space with bespoke cabinetry, including a TV and self-service bar. “Here we put in another HydroTap, dispensing filtered chilled and sparkling water, but we wanted this one on display so that customers can serve themselves drinks straight from the tap. Being visible, it needed to be pretty, so we went for an Arc design in brushed gold, but ensured it was a commercial specified unit.” The project took five months and saw a host of specialists work on the space, bespoke furniture and appliance installation. The result is both timeless and intimate – a true reflection of the owners’ vision.Enquire Today
