Restaurant branding.

"We needed something that reflected the client’s modern approach to traditional Italian cuisine with an emphasis on quality and fresh produce."

Before Crate47 could create the branding, including the restaurant logo design, for this new Italian eatery, we had to undertake the brand naming process. We needed something that reflected the client’s modern approach to traditional Italian cuisine with an emphasis on quality and fresh produce. After much deliberation, ‘Verdi’ was chosen for the brand name, which in addition to being a famous Italian composer, also means ‘greens’. Not only did this lean towards the healthy eating aspect that the client wanted to promote but also gave rise to the use of various shades of green being introduced into the restaurant branding.

Pier 29 Restaurant – Saudi Arabia.

Pier 29

Restaurant branding.

"The logo design itself uses the sort of pared-back lettering that might be found on waterside warehouses."

Crate47 developed branding around the maritime theme we were pursuing. The logo design itself uses the sort of pared-back lettering that might be found on waterside warehouses. But, it’s given a look of quality by setting it in white on a vertical navy blue ribbon inspired by the famous yacht race. This is backed up with a stand-alone marque showing a number 29 on a pier building set on a roundel. The brand identity was enhanced by a series of seafood illustrations. We rendered these in such a way as to give them the look of old scientific marine engravings which lent interest to the print items. With navy blue being used throughout the branding and the interior design the brand experience was complete.

Seafood Restaurant
Design.

"We created a slice of theatre with two large installation pieces suspended above the diners which have the appearance of wooden boats stripped of their exterior planking to reveal the ribs and supporting keels beneath."

Liqui’s seafood restaurant design for Pier 29 was created hand-in-hand with our branding agency Crate47 who created a brand that fits with the nautical theme of our contemporary interior. This was in-line with the all-encompassing brief for this new hospitality venture, and together we developed a subtly branded restaurant interior design that offers a relaxed dining experience for those who enjoy good quality seafood.

With the maritime theme in mind, the interior design of the restaurant combines such elements as navy blue walls and exposed timber. There’s a row of large circular mirror windows running the length of one wall that suggest oversized portholes. We created a slice of theatre with two large installation pieces suspended above the diners which have the appearance of wooden boats stripped of their exterior planking to reveal the ribs and supporting keels beneath. Against another wall stands a pair of similar structures looking like the skeletons of halved boats that have been upended. These open frameworks give the impression of partial shelters for two seating areas.

Bespoke furniture and lighting .

"For the suspended lighting we drew inspiration from old lobster pots and developed our new Brixham range of pendant lights."

Liqui designed a variety of bespoke furniture and lighting to fit with the nautical theme of the restaurant interior design. The most striking of these is the long boat-shaped banquette seating which runs the length of the suspended boat frame installation that it sits beneath. We transformed the look of an old-style Captain’s chair to create very distinctive dining chairs that are used throughout the restaurant design. For the suspended lighting we drew inspiration from old lobster pots and developed our new Brixham range of pendant lights. Although our seafood restaurant design draws inspiration for many of its features from traditional marine artefacts, it reflects those influences with a contemporary edge, offering a wholly modern interior design for the enjoyment of the diners it welcomes.

Shopping Mall Design Saudi Arabia – Al Zaydi.

Shopping Mall Design
Saudi Arabia
Al Zaydi.

Shopping Mall Design.

"A shopping mall design created as a welcoming interior where people can enjoy a bite to eat and some retail therapy."

The Al Zaydi Mall in Saudi Arabia is a shopping mall designed to include the main entrance interior & food court. We were asked to create something a bit different for a public area within a shopping mall. The space serves as the central hub for the surrounding restaurants. Unusually, for these types of spaces, the ceiling height posed an interesting design problem. The ceiling is low; this is exaggerated by the large expansive space. To solve this problem Liqui’s design team looked at leafy piazzas, town squares, and parks for inspiration. We wanted to use this low ceiling to our advantage. The feel of walking under tree canopies with a surrealist edge was the chosen design direction.

In amongst the space were three square supporting pillars. They didn’t really sit well within the overall space so we opted to make a feature of them. The square pillars were made cylindrical and clad with Oak timber slats to create tree-like structures. The sculptural forms reach up into the ceiling forming canopies reflective of trees. These were used as the primary source of light for the semi-basement space with the lighting installations designed to mimic sunlight making up for the lack of natural light. By using programmable LED matrices the right kelvin levels are calibrated to create the illusion of a sky. The dappled light and blue tones then pass through the tree canopies.

The sculptural tree concept was already quite an unusual concept for a Saudi Arabia shopping mall design, but we took it a bit further. On the ceiling, concentric circles of light emanate from the tree structures adding to the spectacle of this public space with the light rings reflected in the white marble floors; adding depth to the whole interior.

The surreal experience of strolling through a park is then completed with the addition of curved pathways mixed with plenty of greenery in planters. Altogether our shopping mall public space design creates a welcoming interior, offering an enjoyable experience of surroundings for people to meet, have a bite to eat, and enjoy some retail therapy.

Restaurant

Restaurant design
and branding.

"Our approach creates comprehensive branded restaurant spaces."

Before Liqui started the Verdi Italian restaurant interior design, our branding company Crate47 had to create the brand, part of which included finding the right name. This process was done in consultation with ourselves so that the restaurant interior and the branding would work in unison. Both had to reflect the modern approach to traditional Italian cuisine that our Saudi Arabia clients wanted to promote. With their emphasis on fresh, quality produce, Verdi (meaning ‘greens’) became the chosen name. The brand’s use of different shades of green in the logo was carried through by us into the interior restaurant design itself in such things as the soft furnishings and wall coverings. As part of the sub-branding, Crate47 created a pattern (seen on the menu design, etc.) which we used on the glass frontage of the restaurant to partially screen the interior from the mall outside. Liqui designed bespoke banquet seating for the more formal part of the restaurant interior, while we combined our Milne barstools with long custom bar tables for the informal area in front of the kitchen servery.

With Liqui developing the Verdi Italian restaurant interior design in conjunction with Crate47’s branding it led to something much more than just a restaurant design with a completely separate brand bolted on. The synergy between the two companies means that there is continuity throughout each project for our clients with the final outcome being a coordinated brand experience for their customers.

Brew 92 Coffee Shop Saudi Arabia – Mecca.

Brew 92
Coffee Shop
Saudi Arabia Mecca.

Coffee shop
interior design.

"Modern coffee shop design in Saudi Arabia."

This modern coffee shop design in Saudi Arabia harks back to the glamour of Art Deco interiors. In particular, with a palette of bright pinks and blues being used throughout, the Mecca coffee shop interior reflects the Tropical Deco style of decor that’s so indicative of Miami’s beachfront hotels from an era full of optimism. The clean lines, strong geometric shapes, and curving forms synonymous with the buildings of the period can be clearly seen in the architectural features of the interior design such as the wraparound coffee counter design, the arched doorways, and the way in which the different sized tiles are delineated on the floors.

The Deco style is clearly expressed in the bespoke banquette seating islands in pink leather with their tuck and roll backs. These form the base for planters that hold the greenery that is also a key element to the overall look of this luxury coffee shop design in Saudi Arabia.

The design.

"Coffee shop interior and exterior design."

The coffee shop layout is over two levels and, like some of Liqui’s other Saudi Arabia interior designs, they are linked by a bespoke spiral staircase. Each level has its own coffee counter and a variety of seating areas that break up the large floor spaces. An idiosyncratic feature of the modern coffee shop design is the more intimate ‘sitting rooms’ on the lower level. These are entered through open archways that form a solid wall above open wooden slats that keep these spaces from feeling too enclosed. Light is brought into them by the use of large oval-shaped reflective panels that have the effect of distorted mirrors; adding a fun element to the coffee shop interior. The slatted archways are also used upstairs to semi enclose the counter area and complement the long curving banquette seat in the window.

Liqui’s coffee shop exterior design creates an inviting alfresco dining area. The tiled terrace is enclosed by contemporary metal railings atop a low wall that acts as a long planter. With the inclusion of other large planters within the seating area the terrace is an oasis of cooling greenery. An ‘eyebrow’ canopy, characteristic of Miami style Art Deco, shades the outdoor space and wraps around the curved facade of the building; adding to the coffee shop’s exterior appeal.

Bespoke furniture design.

"Designed, manufactured and shipped from our UK based studio and workshop."

In addition to designing the coffee shop interior itself, Liqui has also created all of the furniture and lighting within it. Many of the pieces are from ranges we have used in previous Brew92 interiors and the overall look they create has become part of the brand’s DNA. With each coffee shop having its own individual concept, pieces are customised to suit. In this case, pink and blue leather upholstery has been used throughout to tie in with the decor. The synergy that ensues is exemplified here by the Delores chairs that have been employed to great effect paired with Georgie tables. The lozenge shapes found in both complement features within the coffee shop architecture such as the archways. As well as making colour and material customisations to existing ranges, Liqui also designed completely bespoke banquette seating specific to this interior.

Besides manufacturing the furniture and lighting in the UK, we handled the logistics of shipping everything to site. In addition, our interior designers supplied the client with comprehensive design intent drawings for them to work from. As the build progressed we worked closely with them, helping to source appropriate materials, solve problems, and make decisions on such things as paint finishes. We effectively became the client’s creative department; assisting them throughout the project, culminating in a unique modern coffee shop design befitting of leaders in the specialty coffee culture of Saudi Arabia.
