Mediterranean deli bar
Del Aziz is a small restaurant chain set up by Shahrokh Parvin in London as a place to gather for lunch with friends or for an evening meal. I was asked to focus on re-positioning the Clapham site as a destination for casual drinking with a strong food offer for an eclectic mix of locals.
The bar is at the heart of the space so I focused on creating a buzz and highlighting the bar area. I wanted to create warmth and cosiness but also create alcoves to give a sense of being seen but not seen. I introduced reclaimed and vintage pieces to create a unique atmosphere in the Clapham branch and move away from a chain feel. There was an existing timber ceiling in the site which gave it a modernist feel with the new furniture.
