Maison François

Rewind Pause Forward

Maison François

Working together throughout the design process with John Whelan of The Guild of Saint Luke, the design of this contemporary London restaurant was inspired by restored Brutalist spaces combined with the traditional French Brasserie. The aim was to create a luxurious and intimate feel despite the overwhelming concrete surroundings.

The existing concrete shell was taken as the starting point and was brought to life through grand terracotta arches and modern linear lighting. Bringing the kitchen into direct view from the restaurant was key to creating a dynamic atmosphere, sitting below a striking Rado inspired clock which provides a strong centre point for the room.

This project was winner of the Silver Award at the A’Design Awards 2021, and also winner in both the Hospitality and Lighting categories at the Paris Design Awards 2021.
