We have continued our working relationship with 28:50 Wine Workshop & Kitchen and have created their latest wine bar and restaurant on Maddox Street, which opened its doors in September 2013.Designed over two floors, the Maddox Street interior continues the 28:50 tradition of providing a relaxing and inviting atmosphere for patrons, underpinned by the client’s knowledge and passion for food and wine.The interior features reclaimed timber as a reference to the wine barrels used in the ageing and fermentation process, whilst soft leather upholstery is countered by industrial finishes on furniture and storage and the marble and bespoke tiles add a further touch of luxury to the space. “As wood has traditionally been a key feature in wine making, we’ve echoed its use throughout the restaurant from the carefully selected tables and chairs, to a ‘library’ of wine cases that cover the back wall” says Mark Bithrey, design director and founder of B3 Designers. The restaurant features the brand’s very first oyster and champagne bar, serving 40 – 50 champagnes, with four by the glass, on the ground floor, whilst the lower ground will host a major wine display plus the open kitchen. The bar creates a glamorous central focal point, which includes astute lighting that transforms the glasses stored overhead. Both levels have seating for 50 covers and there is additional outdoor space with terraces to the front and rear for al fresco dining. The seating plan was thoughtfully devised to maximize covers while retaining a feeling of seclusion and privacy on both floors.
