MATA Architects were appointed by the team behind Berber&Q and Shawarma Bar to design and deliver their third venue; a neighbourhood restaurant located in Queens Park within a 19th century light industrial warehouse type space.

We were asked to create a casual and informal space for an all day offering, where people would feel equally comfortable meeting friends for brunch through lunch to late night dining and drinking. So the the space needed to adapt to create a different and changing atmosphere throughout the day.

Our design focuses on the use of raw, natural and earthy materials like timber, hand made terracotta and ceramic tiles and raw plaster, elevated through craftsmanship and refined detailing. These are complemented with a large selection of green plants throughout the restaurant interior and exterior, strengthening the natural theme and connection between inside and outside spaces.
