This is the final part to my favourites from the shortlist of the Restaurant and Bar Design Awards. The Apollo with its wonderfully textured walls.
Stepping back to the 1940’s into the Parlour, London, by Michaelis Boyd Assoc.
Salon Urbain by SidLeeArchitecture. Not sure what the use of this space is, but it’s screaming for attention.
The extremely elegant STK Midtown, NYC, by Icrave where black and white are the only tones required when you have stunning sculptural columns and ceiling. Definitely in my top 3.
Another theatrical ceiling coupled with cute little curved banquettes in Sushisamba, London by Cetra Ruddy.
I love seeing a basic traditional building material used to excess, such that it creates a cohesive and relaxing space. Teahouse Bamboo Courtyard by HWCD.
The Century, Sydney by Pairing Onions Design. The tension created by the gently curving black wall against the linearity of the timber is exciting.
The Corner, London by Stiff+Trevillion. Very refined collection of elements in this soft and fresh restaurant at Selfridges. The finely fluted dado panels, deco crystal wall lights, antiqued mirror, subtle curves and linen sheers have a gentle purity when combined.
Very deliberate, contrived and restrained deco lounge of The Luggage Room by Fabled studio. Those armchairs are a very odd proportion.
Put on your shiniest suit and head on out to Vault in the UAE, by LW Design group.
View 62, Hong Kong by Un Design. Incredible ceiling, yet it doesn’t steal from the view.
I was disappointed that only a few submissions had people in their images.
