Rivendale Bistro & Bar sits in the beautiful setting of the Peak District, as part of Darwin Escape's luxury lodge retreat.
With floor to ceiling windows showcasing the breathtaking views across the countryside, the interior colour and finishes palette takes inspiration from the local flora and fauna.
Rustic timbers and limestone clad walls compliment feature wallpapers, bespoke copper lighting and a statement planted screen.
The toilets are a highlight in themselves with a nod to the nearby Tissington Trail, a disused train station turned into a cycle path.
MOD Pizza, one of the fastest-growing pizza chains in the US, is expanding into the UK and chose Keane Brands to work with their US designers and help deliver the scheme.
They wanted colorful, industrial interiors that would appeal to all age groups, with an emphasis on meaningful artwork and local materials.
Keane completed 3 UK sites for them, working on the interiors, branding, bespoke artwork, and menus.
Borehamwood saw much less American influence, as we developed the brand guidelines of MOD from a UK perspective.
As a fire-lined new build, there were very few existing finishes to use, so an industrial feel with a rough plaster, rustic timber, and distressed painted brick slips was designed.
The artwork all had either a local theme from the nearby Elstree Studios or a MOD spirit rooting.
The Leicester Square project is MOD's flagship store, unusually for them set over 3 floors, with a basement level open development and events kitchen.
The scheme retained as many of the existing finishes as possible, keeping to the company mantra of 'letting the building talk'.
Natural woods and warm London brick combine with the clinical white wall tiles and brand artwork, plus the iconic MOD "sticker wall".
Prezzo came to Keane with a brief to add some fun and excitement into their current property portfolio, with added street presence to attract more custom.
The scheme I designed created a modern twist on a traditional Italian courtyard setting with a feature tree, added customer interaction from the olive oil wall, neon text with a faux green wall, and pops of bright color in the artwork and upholstery.
The first new-build site using the new Prezzo scheme meant a bigger budget and less restriction on the design, which meant the concept could be a little further than previously.
With a full-height entrance area the height of the tree could be extended to make a real impact on the space. The exposed services added an industrial element not present in Winchester and enabled the use of feature ceiling rafts.
Northumberland Avenue is one of Prezzo's flagship London restaurants, which previously had a dull, "safe" interior.
The budget here was very small, so the existing furniture was reupholstered, but a big impact was made by filling the oak wall panels with feature artwork and over-cladding the existing bar carcass with teal and marble tiles. A specific client request was 'street presence', which the olive tree and neon greenwall added.
A partnership between Pret-a-Manger and a development company in the middle east approached Keane to pitch for various airport locations across the region.
Vectorworks was a key skill required for the collaboration, so I expanded my skill set to include this design program. Managing tight deadlines, expectations and desires of both the client and the airports was a key factor in the success of these projects.
Greene King approached Keane to design a hospitality environment for their Flaming Grill brand that would appeal to new markets whilst embracing their community and family clientele.
The key to the design was to create a multi-functional space that could flex between dining, drinking and socializing; both during the day and night. The finished project had an industrial feel with splashes of brand colors and artwork influenced by the meaty menu.
