The Italian Job @ Nothing Hill

Pardini Hall Architecture as Architects

Pardini Hall has renovated the former Pelican Public House, established in 1872, in the heart of Nothing Hill, hosting the third venue for The Italian Job. This includes a pub, restaurant and the cocktail bar, Salotto 900, on the second floor.

The focus of the project was to retain and rediscover all the original detailing of the time-honoured pub interior, whilst giving a twist that accompanies all The Italian Job ventures. This has been accomplished by reworking both the internal and external design and colour palette. With the use of colour and materials, the place has been divided in areas with different functions. A new copper and patterned tiled counter forms is the central focus as you enter the pub. Exposed timber floor, brought back to life, lightened space, the walls and ceiling are finished with blue tones, while brown leather furniture compliment the colour scheme. The existing fire place has been refurbished, surrounded by leather chesterfields, the wallpaper on the walls and ceiling is retained and washed with shades of blue with the texture unaltered. Fourteen new taps have been installed each providing a different draught beer, these sit on top of an untreated copper bar top.

The restaurant area is divided by meshed copper screens, globe lights hang from the ceiling and walls. The ceiling to the restaurant is clad with tin tiles aged with a white wash. This creates a more subdued lighting atmosphere. Sky-lights have been inserted to provide natural light during the day. Diners are invited to enjoy this cosy and warm atmosphere, coddled by rich tones of blue and copper, for a familiar but contemporary ‘pub feel’. All the ceiling services are painted, with the globe lighting a constant throughout.

The pub and restaurant are furnished with vintage pub style tables and selection of used upholstered mid-century chairs, Leather seating and chesterfields provide comfort, stools at the bar allow for a more casual approach, allowing the punter to study the fine selection of beer on tap. The use of old pub furniture together with the design and material remain rooted within the traditional and rustic feel. The external facade has been refurbished, with the use of copper leaf and blue, and leaving exposed those grand windows that create amazing effects at night with the reflection of the globe pendant lights inside.
