The project contributes to the redevelopment of Duke of York Square and public realm enhancements along King’s Road Chelsea. The restaurant’s contemporary, ribbon like form – from precast concrete and curved glass panels manufactured offsite – continues from the adjacent Saatchi Gallery. Defined by a slender off-white concrete wall, the facade features a colonnade arrangement behind which retractable glazing allows the dining area to extend into the public realm. The unique mechanism operates like a weighted sash window, sliding down into a basement trench with retracting cills. A gently curving staircase leads to a roof garden which is open to the public.
