Recipient of a Blackpool Civic Trust Award, Joseph Boniface Architects were appointed in 2012 to design the internal fit-out and façade of a new restaurant adjacent the Grade I Winter Gardens in Blackpool.


A sensitive approach to the façade was adopted, particularly with regards to the lighting due to the location. A ribbon of timber slats wraps around the building above ground floor, behind which is located a hidden light source which provides a subtle glow from the spaces between the timber.


A similar principle to the material palette was adopted to the internal fixtures and finishes within the restaurant including feature lighting and double-height space.
