Kin Restaurant, Clerkenwell, London
The commission at Kin, in Clerkenwell, resulted in the complete remodelling, redesign and refurbishment of an existing Chinese restaurant, which was transformed into a new and exciting Thai eatery. Working in close partnership with Kai Design, this commission provided a fantastic opportunity to explore ideas of creating a new and fresh eating experience whilst acknowledging the history of the existing building. Accordingly, although the basement, ground and first floors were extensively remodelled, aspects of the existing building were referenced in a playful manner. Exposed walls and vintage flooring add to this aesthetic, along with the carefully chosen material and colour palette. Feature lighting, together with sourced vintage and bespoke-designed furniture, including a ‘concrete’ bar and serving area, complete the transformation.
