To design the first Buvette Restaurant in the UK
Buvette Notting Hill is the fourth international restaurant for New Yorker Jody Williams. This French concept restaurant follows after it’s sister restaurants in Paris, New York and Toyko. We worked closely with the client to insure the distinct character of Buvette was translated to this new site. The restaurant should feel distinctly like a Buvette restaurant but with a character of its own to reflect elements of London. The client wanted a long bar to double as a dining and service area. This runs along almost half the length of the ground floor and works perfectly in this long narrow site. Joinery and finishing was especially important to insure the space felt authentic and true to the brand. We mixed salvaged materials such as reclaimed barn rafters for the floor, with new joinery to achieve this.
