Arabica Kings Cross

Gundry & Ducker as Designer & Architect

Arabica is a restaurant in the Aga Khan building in Kings Cross London. Envisaged as a canteen for the local area, the design was influenced by the design of post war university campus buildings. The scheme uses a simple palette of materials, brown quarry tile floors, Iroko joinery, exposed aggregate concrete and green wool curtains.

 

What were the key challenges?
To create a warm and welcoming space within a building of a hard corporate appearance..


What was the brief?
To create a neighbourhood restaurant for a new district in London that would operate all day.


Key products used:
Brown quarry tile, green wool fabric, exposed aggregate concrete, Iroko timber.


Who are the clients and what's interesting about them?
The client was a well regarded middle eastern food restaurant with a existing branch in Borough Market London.


What were the solutions?
The solution was by developing a understanding of the area and proposing a solution that relates to its campus style atmosphere.
