Walnut Cafe and Restaurant
Key considerations were producing a low-cost scheme that supported the ambition of the restaurant to be sustainable and provide high quality, locally sourced food. Where possible furniture and shelving was recycled from other local restaurants and upcycled to offer a more industrial feel. Particular care was spent on the lighting to ensure the atmosphere supported both a daytime and evening offer. A long bar was set down the middle of the space for counter top dining with open plan cooking on show behind. Extraction was key to this space but complemented the industrial finish. In addition to the main space the ancillary facilities included staff and client WCs, a back of house kitchen and pot wash space. We also supported with overall graphic identity to ensure the brand was fully integrated into the design.
