Our proposals for Pizza Buzz introduces a new restaurant typology to London, through which customers create their own ‘bespoke’ pizza with high quality local products, ready to eat in only 120 seconds.
This single aspect unit is located between Shoreditch and the City, at the ground floor of the exciting new Alphabeta development. The facade towards the street includes colourful signage across the three window bays, interacting with Worship Street's unique character.
Our design intent lies in converting the unit into an extension of the urban environment surrounding it, by echoing cultural references ubiquitous to the immediate context such as street art & materials like concrete, exposed steel and industrial lights. We aim to develop a ‘transient’ environment where customers can choose to stay in a comfortable collection of seating areas or simply use the take-away. Circulation is efficiently planned along the main pizza bar, adapting customer flow to Pizza Buzz's unique service experience. All furniture and lighting was designed and sourced to express the raw qualities of fine materials, delicately assembled.

_RICHARD JAMES - SAVILE ROW
London, UK Flagship Store | 300 sq m Completed – 2014
In collaboration with Andy Martin This collaborative project for Richard James, renowned Savile Row tailor, delivers a new brand aesthetic, replicable in the group’s stores internationally. The design is based on a division of the unit into a main display area open to five shop front windows and a more private area where classic collections and changing rooms are located. The simplicity of the concept is articulated through a system of seamless floor and ceiling and the use of a dividing screen formed by laminated panels finished with a special dichroic film. Display elements and loose furniture were carefully fabricated and distributed across the store to reflect simplicity, ‘craft’ and a contemporary aesthetic approach. All elements were designed and made bespoke for this flagship store.
