In 2008 the Grade II listed former Holborn Library underwent a huge transformation – emerging as an elegant new restaurant finished to an extremely high standard. We worked with beautiful natural materials such as oak, marble and slate – procuring and machining them to our client’s exacting standards – to create two main dining areas, bars and a mezzanine level.

Situated on a red route in one of the busiest parts of London, the works demanded careful co-ordination to avoid disruption to traffic and adjoining businesses.
