In collaboration with B3 Designers, IDP were involved in all aspects of the design including feasibility planning, detailed design, contract administration, Local Authority and Landlord's approvals.

The interior has a strong reference to Aberdeen's industrial past. A warm atmosphere was created using industrial materials and light fittings, and reclaimed materials such as apple crates for the back bar. Modern furniture and bold colours were used to make the interior contemporary and inviting.

A tarnished mild steel and glass shopfront, with oversized, steel clad, main entrance door, is the first feature you notice as you enter the restaurant. Internally the ceiling and steelwork were left exposed and painted out and all ductwork and cable trays to support services were also exposed. Tarnished metal grids were offset from the wall to support the bar and suspended from the ceiling to support glass shelves and the above counter butchers rail.  The illustration is by an artist from Edinburgh School of Art.
