    We acted as Architects and designers for this new urban eatery. A conversion of a large shell space into a modern contemporary restaurant for this successful and growing hospitality business. The 2nd restaurant design for this client, we created an ultra flexible layout that allows for quick changes from 2’s to large groups of 20, for breakfast, lunch and dinner. A multi functional space at the front caters for early coffee, and later prinks. The large room feels cosy and intimate with a variety of dining spaces, so the restaurant always feels private and lively.

    A restaurant design that always feels private and lively. Delivering on the objective of creating a flexible space to cater to individuals or to larger groups.

    The business plan called for a hospitality design capable of accommodating breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as a multi-functional space at the front to cater for early coffee, and later prinks. Jennings Design Studio provided end to end project management for the project. Together with McHugh's restaurant team we agreed a design strategy and developed an architectural scheme ensuring the completed restaurant would meet the business objectives and create an inviting customer experience. Working closely with the client we delivered a bespoke, flexible restaurant fitout including customised furniture, lighting design and an innovative wine storage solution. Our team managed each phase of the project through to completion.

    The McHugh family have been in business for over 50 years and have built up a reputation for high standards and customer service. McHugh’s aims to serve great food and great wine to their customers in a beautifully designed surroundings.
