Ka Pao Bar Restaurant

Ka Pao Bar Restaurant

Client: Scoop Restaurants

Area:

Status: Completed

Following the success in designing sister restaurant Ox & Finch, we were appointed by Scoop Restaurants to provide architecture and interior design services for the latest addition to its portfolio, Ka Pao, a 200 capacity bar Restaurant with a £1m project cost located within the basement unit of the Grade A listed Botanic Garden Garage development.

Thanks to existing and reclaimed white ceramic brick walls and a full elevation of crittal style glazing running down the length of the restaurant, the space is unusually bright and airy for a basement unit.

An industrial mix of white-washed concrete soffits, galvanized steel services, poured cement floors softened with live planting, reclaimed furniture, decorative and intelligent lighting contrast with bold pops of colour, earthy hand fired and glazed tiles, creating a vibrant colourful and richly illuminated interior that has both a juxtapose and always-been there relationship with the building.
