Solus Ceramics has added flavour to the recently refurbished Gourmet Burger Kitchen restaurant in Earls Court, London through the use of its versatile Program range. 

Gourmet Burger Kitchen (GBK) carries out regular refurbishment projects across all restaurants within their portfolio to ensure the latest design trends are utilised to offer customers unique and visually appealing dining spaces. With this in mind, the decision was made that GBK’s popular Earls Court restaurant was to be refreshed with an eye-catching makeover to update the brand image and create space for additional tables.

moreno:masey Architecture, an innovative interior design practice that has built up a strong working relationship with GBK over five years to offer customers fresh and vibrant dining spaces, oversaw the design of the refurbishment.

Stuart Child, Senior Architect at moreno:masey Architecture, said of the project: “The restaurant is located on a busy street corner in Earls Court so we wanted to ensure the interior design was of such appeal that passers would be enticed into the restaurant. 

“To achieve this, we opened up the views into the kitchen and linked two previously separate dining areas into a single space, maximising the available floor. A focal point of this design was the visual linkage from the bar to the kitchen fronts, which was realised through the use of hexagon shaped floor and wall tiles from Solus Ceramics’ versatile Program range. The bold and angular lines offered by the hexagonal shape, combined with mixing and matching different coloured tiles together, allowed us to create a modern and energetic central aesthetic that flowed throughout the entire restaurant.

“The specialist technical staff at Solus Ceramics recommended the use of the Program range, not only as it offers a broad spectrum of colour options and bespoke shapes that help elevate previously plain painted surfaces, but also a robust and slip resistant finish, that is absolutely essential in heavy traffic areas such as restaurants.
