No1 Vaults; La Becasse, Ludlow
Commissioned by the Michelin starred ‘10 in 8 The Fine Dining Group’, headed by Chef Alan Murchison, we designed a bespoke tasting room experience at the prestigious Ludlow based ‘La Becasse’ restaurant of Chef/Patron Will Holland. Enthused by Chef’s passionate desire to create a unique dining experience that offers views into the working kitchen, we helped Will to realise his ideas about bringing the sensory experience of cooking closer to his guests, with the finished dishes served by the chefs themselves. Bespoke beech chopping block tables, rustic slate floor finishes combined with white tile walls echoing the harder lines of the kitchen create a mood which contrasts dramatically with the traditional wood-panelled ‘fine dining’ ambiance of ‘La Becasse’s’ other spaces. Copper pendants , reminiscent of whisky stills, reference Bowmore Whisky’s sponsorship of No.1 Vaults. This Shropshire interior design project allowed us to demonstrate how our interior design consultancy involvement can help clients to realise projects within realistic timescales and carefully controlled budgets.
