We were proud to be asked by Carina
and Victor Contini to design the refurbishment of their award-winning cafe and restaurant at The Scottish National Gallery
and Victor pride themselves on serving locally sourced, sustainably produced food with a menu that showcases the best artisan produce from around Scotland.
They call the result "Happy Food" and it was important that the interior suitably reflect this philosophy.
With a brief to re-energise the space and impart some Contini zest while framing the stunning surroundings we worked on the lighting, upholstery, finishes and lay-out.
By re-developing the staircase to the upper level and incorporating mirroring and inviting booths we aimed to entice diners to this area of the restaurant while the fabric-covered wall is a striking feature.
Victor and Carina
are happy - so we are happy.
Firstly you have struck lucky if your clients are Victor and Carina Contini of Edinburgh's leading Italian restaurant Centotre on George Street.
With a huge wealth of expertise in their own field Victor and Carina
combine a clear vision of what they want with a willingness to seek out those who can bring their own expertise to the table.
