The existing ground floor space has been refurbished with a new central bar surrounded by separate seating areas, which allows for abundant natural light and pedestrian flow from all sides. The refurbishment aims to create a warm and elegant environment, using a simple palette of quality, earthy materials like natural wood, mild steel and ceramics to evoke a Mediterranean inspired feel. Suspended timber shelving delineates the space and allows for the display of goods and greenery.
