Michelin-starred Eneko Atxa’s stylish Basque restaurant and wine bar opened in the heart of London in September.
DHA Designs worked alongside Casson Mann who introduced a sleek copper staircase from street-level to mezzanine and revealed and restored the original steel columns to give a greater sense of space to the below-ground dining room.
DHA Design’s scheme features concealed LED sources to give the impression of natural light falling into the space, making the restaurant light and airy by day, then switching to a cosier ambience from warm colour temperatures after dark.
The space is relaxed yet theatrical with each curved booth spotlit like a stage, with a backdrop of sculptural flowers.
