The Ivy Restaurant, The West End
The opportunity to design The Ivy restaurant in London arose from the work with artists. The restaurant is full of their work, much of it commissioned especially for the location. It includes examples by Paolozzi, Blake, Hodgkin, Jones, Phillips and Caulfield. It also provided an opportunity for the architects to devise a lighting scheme housed in complex cast plaster sections and to work in stained glass, brass, oak, and leather. The restaurant has been fully booked since it opened and is highly rated for its ambience.
