This is an exercise in bringing together old and new in a clear a distinct relationship.
The design uses an over-sailing roof, minimal steel structure, and sliding glass doors to open up the restaurant interior and its kitchen to the surrounding exterior terrace. A glass link brings the two buildings together with least impact on the older fabric.
GLA worked with Basil Smith Architects who had developed the concept design and Parkbench Interiors.
