This project was the refurbishment of a previous restaurant in Jewellery Quarter, Birmingham, for the relocation of Jojolapa Nepalese Bar & Kitchen. The brief was to create a warm and inviting atmosphere, with Nepalese influences.
This Grade II Listed building and former George and Dragon pub had stood empty for 21 years and was falling into a state of serious disrepair and had become a local eyesore. The project was to sensitively restore the building and create two apartments above the pub.
Our concept design secured the much in demand retail space at Fort Dunlop with our client and was developed into a stunning and finely crafted interior that formed a living, breathing backdrop to Vinappris TV.
Already established in the region with their chain of 5 fish and chip shops, Tasty Plaice commissioned us to provide a more cutting edge design for their prestigious new outlet at Merry Hill shopping centre's new food court. Our input extended beyond the design to rebranding, including logo, uniforms and packaging, in order to challenge their high street competitors.
The prestigious project is set on the ground floor of Birmingham's contemporary art gallery, Ikon Gallery and has become a stalwart for the city's discerning restaurant frequenters and was called "a modern masterpiece" by Birmingham's "What's On" magazine.
