Blog/Railway Arch Becomes Trendy Eatery
A corrugated ceiling makes a bold statement in this London restaurant.
The interior scheme features a palette of dusky pinks and urban nudes.
Local design firm Run For The Hills has proposed a contemporary interior with vintage and industrial references for concept restaurant, Kricket.
Set under the railway arches of London’s Brixton, the recently completed interior features hand-painted tiles, white Carrara marble, a concrete floor and distressed metal finishes. While a palette of dusty urban hues creates a pared-back aesthetic.
In the dining area, an eclectic mix of mismatched Bentwood style chairs offers comfortable yet stylish seating for sipping cocktails at the bar or devouring seasonal sharing plates with friends at the communal table. But it is the unusual corrugated ceiling that makes this scheme so enticing. Embracing the familiar curve of the railway arch overhead, it creates a bold statement that is both industrial and contemporary.
For owners Will Bowlby and Rik Campbell, Kricket Brixton signifies a return to their roots; their first venture a 20-seater shipping container within POP in 2015.
Kricket serves Indian inspired street-food made using seasonal British produce. For more inspiration or make a reservation visit Kricket Brixton.
Vintage Bentwood style chairs lend an almost colonial feel to the industrial space.
The relaxed scheme makes Kricket Brixton ideal for late night drinks, cocktails and small plates alike.
“We’ve styled Kricket Brixton with a dusky palette, painting the corrugated curves of the two railway arch ceilings in a knocked back pink terracotta.”
