This prestigious project completed in 2013 offering panoramic views from Level 33 of the magnificent Shard. The 130-cover restaurant was the first Hutong venue located outside of its native Hong Kong. Inspired by the hutongs or alleyways that criss-crossed across old Beijing, Hutong at The Shard merges the traditions of Northern China with a striking modern twist.
It was a competitive tender and the work was a logistical challenge, in particular with regards to delivery of materials, and also integration of services with the rest of the building. We responded to the challenge by setting up a more comprehensive on-site management team to focus on these issues, and the restaurant opened on time.
Following the projects in The Shard, we were delighted to be given the opportunity in 2015 to carry out the extensive refurbishment of Aqua Nueva in Argyll St, Oxford Circus. The result is stunning.
