This Grade II listed building dates back to 1791 built as a home for the Liverpool School for the Blind in Hardman Street. Working alongside Newmoon Pub Co, the building was converted into a 280 capacity restaurant and bar falling over two floors and included a new state of the art kitchen, toilets and two bars.
We wanted to create a relaxed atmosphere with a quirky edge. With a plethora of rich history behind it, it was vital that this local iconic landmark remained close to its roots through our design interpretation. Keeping and restoring many of the architectural elements, we added contemporary flair to the design to bring the building back to life.
To balance heritage and current trends, we added a lot of clever visually exciting but subtle art installations and ‘playful’ elements that helped to tell the buildings history.
