This freestanding restaurant in Battery Park represents a rebranding of a highly successful “Tex-Mex” restaurant that had existed nearby for over a decade.The challenge was to make the spaces feel distinct from one another while united by a cohesive theme, using rustic materials in unusual ways to create an upscale vibe.

Jamie’s Italian Aberdeen – 20 May 2013
The restaurant occupies the first and second floors of the Union Street frontage of the old Esslemont and Macintosh department store. This was a retail landmark in the city and is a listed building. The design respects the original building, and restores the windows, cast iron structure and wooden floors. The exterior will be repaired and cleaned and the original mosaic signage retained.
1090 Rochus, Bauernfeldplatz, Vienna, Austria
Design: Söhne & Partner Architekten

Rochus Restaurant – 24 Apr 2013
When planning this building the instructors made a great effort to include all different requirements in the project without, however, neglecting the idea of a unified architectural line. So when the general refurbishment on Bauernfeldplatz in 1090 Vienna started it was important to connect the different levels and to open up the restaurant towards the road space in the foreground. A special element of the building is the sun garden from 1913.

Il Milione Restaurant – 19 Mar 2013
Elegant interior by English architects: “Il Milione was a challenging project, not least because of its location, relative to where the design was being developed. The building had limited natural light and a low, fixed ceiling height. This was overcome by the inventive use of indirect lighting and reflective ceiling features, which accentuate the space”.

Greek Beach Restaurant – 13 Feb 2013
The major challenge in the design for this building was dealing with the dominant natural conditions: the burning 40-degree midday sun and the notorious ‘Meltemi’ summer wind. Rather than blocking the effects of these natural forces, the architects welcomed them, embracing their qualities, adding them to their palate of materials, and turning them to the advantage of the design.

French Restaurant in Seoul – 5 Jul 2012
‘La Ville de Pins’ is a French Restaurant Remodeling project in Sinsa-dong, Gangnam-gu, which is the hottest district at metropolitan area in the city of Seoul, Korea. “I thought that the conciseness might tell the message more strongly in the age when the extraordinary designs are rampant formatively and visually. Therefore, I designed this space only with white color and shapes of extremely moderated straight line on the whole”.

Sake MANZO, Beijing – 26 Mar 2012
This is a renovation project of an old building made into a Japanese restaurant. As Manzo Bar (design by BMA 2005) was to move, the architects were requested to design the interior space again.

New Restaurant Design – 14 Sep 2011
Guy Hollaway Architects’ design for Folkestone’s new high profile restaurant – Rocksalt – has been completed.

Garden Restaurant, Kiev, Ukraine

Garden Restaurant Kiev
The location of this restaurant – a green space surrounded by historical buildings at the heart of Kiev – and the old trees with their protective canopy of leaves have helped shape the spot and give it its unique atmosphere. The central concern of the Stuttgart architects was to capture these characteristic features and further enhance them with a sensitive approach to the overall design: floating levels, lightweight structures and clear, elegant materials characterise the ambience of the garden restaurant.
