Home Restaurant – Leeds
Leeds city centre
Bowman Riley Interiors provided technical support and interior design advice on HOME, a new fine dining restaurant on Kirkgate in Leeds city centre.
HOME is the creation of Elizabeth Cottam, the semi-finalist of 2016 BBC MasterChef and Mark Owens, former Head Chef at the Michelin-starred The Box Tree in Ilkley.
The 3669 ft2 venue was previously a dance hall, billiard club, cinema and most recently an Indian restaurant. Bowman Riley helped with the transformation of the space into a unique contemporary 65 cover restaurant with bar area.
Our role involved liaison with the contractor and building control to ensure the smooth delivery of the fit-out of the restaurant.
The design concept for HOME is inspired by the Scandinavian theme Hygge. The furniture and fittings were sourced from Copenhagen, the centre of Scandinavian design and its association with Hygge. We provided interior design advice on space planning, circulation, furniture layout and colour schemes.
Additionally, we created visuals to support the marketing of the restaurant prior to its opening. The restaurant opened with two months advance bookings ahead of its launch.
To support the second phase of the development, we liaised with a structural engineer to assess the viability of a rooftop terrace.
