Design LSM has recently completed the work on the redesign and re-launch of the award-winning steak and seafood restaurant, The Coal Shed, Brighton.
Following the success of The Coal Shed’s sister restaurant The Salt Room, also based in Brighton, DesignLSM were delighted to be asked to work on the branding and interiors for the relaunch of this popular restaurant.
The design brief was to refresh the original interior and branding, bringing a new look and feel into the space that could easily be connected to the sophisticated character of The Salt Room.
In the main restaurant, the designers utilised an urban colour palette accompanied by a range of raw materials including reclaimed wood, ceramic tiles and leather creating a warm and relaxing setting for patrons. Scattered across the space is stunning array of glass pendant lights highlighting the beautiful bespoke finishes on the brass-trimmed tables.
The upstairs private dining room named ‘The Chef’s Library’ has been dramatically re-envisioned. In order to connect the intimate room with the downstairs space, we used a similar bold palette to bring out key features such as the ornate antique wall mirror and opulent blue drapes. Our designers softened the interiors with an array of softly lit rustic candles and created a shelving display, which showcases the Chef’s knowledge and inspiration through collections of vintage cookbooks and kitchenalia.
DesignLSM’s branding team updated The Coal Shed’s visual identity and collateral harmonising it to sit alongside its partner The Salt Room.
Inspired by its historical location in Brighton, our team hunted down the original drawings of Brighton’s iconic Hippodrome building and transformed them into eye-catching blue prints for the restaurants interior.
DesignLSM worked closely with Raz throughout the project to create another unique and arresting environment, where patrons can immerse themselves into the authentic gourmet cuisine that has captured Brighton’s restaurant scene.
