To create the desired outcome, we undertook a full refurbishment of an existing restaurant site working on the ground floor trade area, first floor trade area, frontage, back of house and kitchen works and installed the vital wood-fired pizza oven.
The building is listed which meant planning and listed building submission was required, it also meant some negotiation about how the flue for the new wood fired pizza oven would be installed.
The restaurant is spread over 2 floors however the building actually has 3 floors, the top floor is a manager’s accommodation and prep kitchen. In total there are 112 dining covers making a sizeable new addition to their growing portfolio.
We also worked on external areas of the building, our furnishings supplier Revivalist added new external furniture and we took care of decorations, some minor repairs and a new Three Joes sign.
All design, build and furnishing works were managed by Concorde resulting in a much faster turnaround of the restaurant with the project taking just over 4 weeks to complete.
The decor throughout is minimal as the brand is all about good honest food, the walls are painted in a pale grey with a red gloss painted dado line to add in a hint of the brand guideline. Pops of colour have been added through the upholstery fabrics and fixed seating. The lighting has industrial vibes offset with filament lamps to create a warm atmosphere and give a welcoming glow to the building.
The works to this site were mainly cosmetic with main changes being the pizza oven installation in the kitchen and the construction of a new family toilet to what was previously a bottle store on the ground floor.
It was exciting working with a new client with a very quick turnaround as they needed to get the site open quickly ready for summer trade
