Occupying a large open space and a series of rooms branching away from the main staging area of the restaurant, the Alderley Edge hotel’s restaurant offers a boutique experience to guests and visitors alike, with a vibrant and creative menu that compliments the versatile countryside surroundings and the unique vibe of the hotel.
When we were brought on board to help this restaurant project find its space in the world of restaurant and hospitality interior design, we were immediately excited by the potential afforded through the selection of rooms which lead away from the main restaurant space as private off-shoots. From a separate bar space to a lounge room and more intimate, private dining facility, this hotel restaurant embodies both luxury and intimacy alongside its traditional menu.
With an eye to delivering simple dishes made beautiful, with the best ingredients and the finest craftsmanship, we wanted the interior design and decoration of this restaurant to be equally intricate in design and definition. The large sweeping space boasts a large glass ceiling roof in the centre to maximise the flow of natural light during the day, with our team integrating a concealed surrounding light strip to the outside of this skylight window for evening sittings. The colour scheme we used was very simple, with greys and yellow detailing juxtaposing and flowing throughout each room – though we implemented more of an industrial feel in the main dining space with stone-effect walls and wooden panelling.
Finally, to the decorative details, in the form of luxurious velvet chairs and colourful lampshades (particularly in the private dining suite) – all of which were deliberately chosen to really embody the idea of this being a restaurant within a boutique and independently crafted hotel.
This project saw our team combine creative and innovative design ideas with the freedom to explore ways of bringing to life a series of connected spaces and rooms – all united by the same design scheme but with different details and intricate features.
