The Sky GardenHad a very interesting time last week - first of all at the Restaurant Design Show at Excel, London, followed the next day by the Restaurant & Bar Design Awards at the Truman Brewery.

As eateries start to take on the role of nightclubs and pubs, the themes and decor are becoming ever-more exciting. And the Alhambra girls are pretty excited to be getting involved in quite a few projects!

Kipferl Kipferl
Fabulous speakers at the Restaurant Design Show included Benedict Wilhelm - who told us about the inspiration behind some of his iconic projects, such as Kipferl where the bars point towards Austria. We were chuffed to meet o1 Creative, too, who delivered the incredible Sky Garden on top of London's Walkie Talkie building (top picture). Other fabulous Interior Architects and Designers at the show included KanvassBrown Studio and the all-woman Design Command (great to see a team of women in what is still a rather male-dominated world :-)

Wildwood KitchenAfter meeting some stella designers the day before, it was brilliant to see several of them up for awards the next day at the Restaurant & Bar Design Awards. Design Command won with the amazing Wildwood Kitchen above. Big congratulations, too, to the talented and friendly Brown Studio for scooping the prize for Best Restaurant or Bar in a Transport Space (below)

Brown StudioThe Awards are a globally-recognised competition dedicated to the design of food and beverage spaces. This covers every imaginable space, from ships to airports, museums to burger vans, and Michelin-starred establishments to thrilling pop-ups.  

Alhambra was invited to the Awards show because we supplied tiles to one of the shortlisted restaurants, Levi Roots Caribbean Smokehouse, designed by B3 Designers.
