Padella, Shoreditch

Restaurant/Hospitality

At Phipp Street we had to accommodate an industrious early morning bakery, bustling open kitchen, busy lunch service and elegant evening dining, allowing the space to change not just through the day but throughout the seasons. Incorporating the warm tones of 1950s Italian canteens and sinuous lines of Riva boats, burgundy, mustard, polished brass and hard woods sit elegantly within the raw concrete of this double-height shell. We used skilled craftspeople to reinvent the logo in marquetry, a classical technique that lets the beauty of the wood shine.
