Trade Old Street
Location: Old Street, London
Our well-known award-winning client commissioned us to design their third restaurant - on the buzzy Old Street roundabout. The material palette that we established for Trade consists of natural, warm materials like wood, concrete and copper.
Trade Essex Road
Location: Essex Road, London
Twist In Architecture's second Trade restaurant - this time in a popular residential area of De Beauvoir Town in London. As before, we have dealt with an existing run-down space and put all our efforts to create a new, vibrant and typical-Trade warm and welcoming feel.
Location: Commercial Street, London
Twist In Architecture was commissioned to design a restaurant/coffee shop in the prominent & busy Commercial Street, just 2 minutes away from trendy Spitalfields Market. The existing run-down space went through several modelling changes, and the interior fit-out created an entirely new feel of the shop. We wanted to achieve a warm and materially expressive interior and break away from the shabby-chic norm.
Location: Spitalfields, London
We were presented with a quirky brief to create a high-end Indian restaurant in the place of an existing curry-house type Indian restaurant (different owners). Given a highly constrained budget, we have formed the design philosophy to utilise what was already there as a natural environmental project reducing the landfill considerably. We have used the chutney bowls to make lights and existing unfashionable chairs to create the bar, creating a warm feel to complement their Michelin-Star cuisine.
Location: Kings Cross, London
Twist In Architecture was commissioned to design an original coffee & 21st-century internet-cafe mix in King's Cross busy Caledonian Road, 5 minutes away from the new art college & development at Granary Square N1C. We have created an industrial feel to the shop with the concept of exposing all services - including the computers and their feed to the sitting stations. We were also co missioned to design the bespoke lighting and plywood furniture.
Jack The Clipper, Brick Lane
Location: Brick Lane, London
Twist In Architecture was commissioned to propose a design for a hairdresser shop in trendy Brick Lane, east London. We wanted to combine the opposites – contemporary design with an established Victorian themed hairdresser brand; and the vibrant street's history with a new building. The design theme focuses on the street's name and history in making bricks and various past and current communities in the neighbourhood.
Ness Digital Engineering - London HQ
Location: Holborn, London
An established software company approached us to refurbish their office in Holborn, London. They presented us with a brief to form two separate meeting rooms in an existing office with a controlled permeability and the storage as the absolute priorities as a somewhat constrained budget.
VIP Lounge in Camden
Location: Camden, London
A hidden gem in Camden, just for members. The scope was to completely sound-proof the members-only club in the middle of the residential terrace and form a club with excellent acoustics.
