Our task was to use lighting to complement and enhance the existing chic interior, allowing for a range of patrons throughout the day. Overall, our objective was to create a relaxed space that was also externally inviting. Using the precedent of contemporary open plan living, we divided the restaurant into several areas promoting familiarity and comfort. Therefore, the restaurant is lit into various areas as if they were, such as the dining room, sitting room and kitchen.
