Gourmet Burger Kitchen (GBK) carries out regular refurbishment projects across all restaurants within its portfolio to ensure the latest design trends are utilised to offer customers unique and visually appealing dining spaces.
With this in mind, the decision was made that GBK’s popular Earls Court restaurant was to be refreshed with an eye-catching makeover to update the brand image and create space for additional tables.
moreno:masey Architecture, an innovative interior design practice that has built up a strong working relationship with GBK over five years, oversaw the design of the refurbishment.
“The restaurant is located on a busy street corner in Earls Court so we wanted to ensure the interior design was of such appeal that passers-by would be enticed into the restaurant,” explains Stuart Child, senior architect at moreno:masey Architecture.
“To achieve this, we opened up the views into the kitchen and linked two previously separate dining areas into a single space, maximising the available floor. A focal point of this design was the visual linkage from the bar to the kitchen fronts, which was realised through the use of hexagon shaped floor and wall tiles from Solus Ceramics’ versatile Program range.
“The bold and angular lines offered by the hexagonal shape, combined with mixing and matching different coloured tiles together, allowed us to create a modern and energetic central aesthetic that flowed throughout the entire restaurant.”
