Brasserie Blanc in Fulham Reach came out top at this year’s Restaurant & Bar Design Awards, picking up the UK Winner award for the ‘Multiple Restaurant’ category.
The Fulham restaurant opened its doors last summer and sits on Hammersmith embankment, overlooking the river. Former home to the Haig distillery, in-house designer Inge Watrobski and interior and brand designers 3stories, worked together to incorporate this history into the brasserie’s design. The collaboration with Jordan Little of 3stories saw the creation of a stunning glass-fronted haven, perfectly balancing a chic relaxed brasserie atmosphere with modern design features complete with plush furnishings and hand-painted finishes.
Beautiful hanging lights mimic the curve of the building and Lee Broom Decanter lights are a nod to the history of the area.
The Restaurant & Bar Design awards now in its tenth year, is a globally recognised competition, dedicated to the design of food and beverage spaces. Judged by a panel of some of the most influential personalities in design, hospitality and lifestyle globally, the awards received over 900 entries from the UK and 70 other countries.
One of the esteemed judges, Jean-Michel Offe, noted that the venue has an ‘integrity of comfort and luxury which has created a very chic destination bar and relaxed seating alongside more formal dining spaces.’
Raymond Blanc comments: “We are thrilled that the Fulham Reach brasserie has been singled out by some of the most influential personalities in design and hospitality. Inge and the team worked incredibly hard to create a beautifully chic yet relaxed space and this recognition is testament to all their efforts.”
