The Saatchi Cafe and Gallery
Conversion of the former Duke of York’s Headquarters off the Kings Road in Chelsea, to form a restaurant and cafe with art gallery at first floor to compliment the main gallery spaces.
The concept was to maintain the unique historically significant aspects of the existing building whilst installing and adapting this to accommodate the kitchen, serving area, seating and gallery spaces.
The final design incorporates two seating areas, kitchen and servery, bar area and gallery space at the first floor. The design mixes an eclectic range of art from the Saatchi collection alongside the cafe installation.
What the Press say:
• “The Elphick residence brings the ultimate in high-octane glamour.”
• “The architects vision to create this multi-purpose space has become the heart of the house which is as beautiful as it is functional.”
House & Garden.
• “This design is not a showroom but a successful home, the spaces whilst minimal are full of character.”
The Richard & Judy Show.
• “The various purposes and functions of particular spaces make this place into a gymnastic giant.”
