One of the things I loved about living in London was the abundance of cool restaurants, cafes and bars that continually popped across the city. It’s been a while since I’ve featured a cool restaurant here on the blog, so today I’m excited to throw the spotlight on this charming cafe in St.Pauls, London. Click through after the jump to tour SHOT cafe!
The interior of SHOT was designed by Wilson Holloway and the design firm did a great job of interpreting the healthy food evangelists at SHOT by creating an experimental interior. SHOT’s owners were keen for the design to be a direct reflection of their careful scientific approach to recipe development – their menu demands that every ingredient used must offer direct health benefits.The design team used bespoke curved ceramics to create a continuous clinical tiled space inspired by Victorian medical laboratories and the traditional curved ceramics of the London Underground. The serving counter, menu screens, customer fridge and kitchen door were all integrated into one complex and continuous expanse of tiles.I love how the tiles were also used to form the counter tops, a central table, bar stools and even the pendant lampshades – it gives the space a quirky, unique feel. Very scientific, for sure!Four unique colors were developed for the stools and pendants to reflect the cafe’s branding. The designers then added further color via rubber flooring, planting, and a neon sign. The simple color block approach against the white tile adds emphasis to the minimal hues that feature in the space.
