Its been a Rollercoaster ride but we got there in the end and from all the positive feedback received so far it was worth every bit of elbow grease. St James of Bermondsey officially opened at 11am today, phew!

Photoshoot will be happening some time in the near future. Until then, here’s the pub’s website: http://www.stjamesse16.com/

Something is Brewing in Bermondsey….

……and it aint another block of flats!

In precisely 9 days from now fine crafty beers and delicious oozy pies will be served up to anyone wise enough to be within the handsome walls of St James of Bermondsey. What was very almost swallowed up by property developers and turned into flats is instead undergoing an intensive refurb and will very soon be reborn after being restored back to its former glory.

Follow its progress here: http://www.stjamesse16.com/

See you at the opening!

Tatreez Cafe

Following the official opening last Friday Tatreez Cafe is now in full swing!

Serving up delicious Palestinian treats and tasty tasty Lebanese wine (which by the way is one of the most gulpable pleasuresome red wines ever to grace the inside of my mouth) and with plenty of live music nights which range from Folk Gypsy to traditional Palestinian to Afro Fusion, if you haven’t already been, its well worth a visit, and when you do I’m sure you’ll be going back again and again…and again….and……anyway enough words, its over to the pictures.

The Marquess Tavern, Islington

Finally…… we present to you the finished photos of The Marquess Tavern.

It was such a pleasure to work with this beautiful listed building, built in the 1850’s alongside one of London’s hidden treasures, the New River. Our brief was to create a comfortable, homely, unpretentious feel focusing particulary on the grand conservatory at the rear which in its existing state, although it was always beautiful space, felt too stark and vast. It was important to play with heights in this space so we have added a beautiful, striking lighting feature made up of 28 individual pendants hung from the huge skylight, this in effect brings the eye level down away from the high ceiling void. The high reclaimed timber perch tables then raise the eye level away from the floor creating a much more varied and eclectic feel.  We also deepened and darkened the walls, filled them with artworks, books, and lights and laid down some rugs to add to the cosy feel of the space.

In general, throughout, we have gone for an eclectic mix of contemporary and traditional with a slightly colonial edge. The greatest visual statements coming through in the light fittings which fill the space with warmth and interest. You will also notice visual references throughout, particularly in the artwork, to George Orwell and Evelyn Waugh, who both lived around the corner in Canonbury Square for many years.

Well……. thats it from us, we are absolutely delighted with the result but we want to hear from you, so please send us your comments, we want to know what you think of our latest refurb!

Tatreez Cafe – N16

You can no longer walk down Stoke Newington High Street without noticing its latest arrival, Tatreez Cafe serving up delicious Palestinian dishes. The main focal point of the space is “Big Mamma” the huge pizza oven that dominates the front area of the restaurant, this is the  beating heart of the restaurant providing tasty treats and a food theatre for the customers.

Whilst there are still a few unfinished corners, Tatreez is open business. Go and check it out!

The Marquess tavern, Islington

THIS IS NOW – A MAMMOTH RELIC DESIGN MAKES AN EPIC RELIC INTERIOR

At a whopping great big 3.6m long by 2.1m high this is officially our largest piece to date! Commissioned by the brilliant “This Is Now” for the their newly refurbished Soho office.

With bold splashes of colour, assymetric geometries, our trademark black edge and good old reclaimed scaffold boards this piece is oozing with Character. It works here perfectly as a visual separation between the reception area and the office space whilst still retaining glimpses through with loads of useful storage space incorporated into the design.
