The inky interiors of new London restaurant 64 Goodge Street are designed to elicit the city’s storied culinary history.
Studio Found designed the space, which is housed within an 18th century townhouse in Fitzrovia, the restaurant is part of the Woodford Restaurant Group – the same umbrella that includes London cult favourite Quality Chop House. Its aim was to reflect 64 Goodge Street’s ‘high end yet rustic’ menu by mixing raw and refined materials to create a similar atmosphere inside the restaurant.
Says the practice: ‘We steered away from a cliche design of a restaurant of this style and instead reflected the rustic inspired cooking through our material selection of farmhouse style features such as a combination brick and rough timber flooring and sawn timber planks for dining tables.’
More refined finishes come from brass elements, antique furniture and marble counters which add patina.
Furniture is classic, with the studio saying it prioritised comfort and style to retain ‘an honest charm’ inside the London restaurant, adding linen curtains and a spectacular dried flower arrangement by Design By Nature, which hangs over a separate dining nook.
64 Goodge Street’s menu offers ‘French cooking from an outsider’s perspective’, which means snail bon bons, haggis parmentier and smoked eel salad.
