Designed by Russell Sage Studio, this 10,000 square foot space is set across two floors, comprising a cafe and deli on the ground floor and an upstairs restaurant and bar.
Helen Puolakka will head up the kitchen, serving the Nordic cuisine of her Finnish heritage, complemented by classic French dishes and techniques refined over the course of her career.
Russell Sage Studio has drawn inspiration from the breadth of these food concepts to create distinct dining spaces which contrast, yet complement one another.
The 161 cover cafe and deli feature a neutral colour palette, with grey and beige tones offset by brass detailing, marble and timber finishes.
The restaurant’s proximity to Victoria Station is referenced through the use of luggage-inspired detailing on the cafe’s bar front, which will also be crowned by a reimagined railway clock.
A spectacular staircase will lead to the 122 cover restaurant and cocktail bar above, with shades of purple and gold and assorted materials, from brass and marble to velvet leather.
The ceiling itself will become a work of art, with its undulating, layered fabrics reflecting the notion of travel and movement.
