Interior design for a craft beer and charcuterie hang-out
"Refining the industrial in a converted railway arch, Kilder celebrates craft in this laid back hang-out."
The owners of Digbeth’s much-loved craft beer and burger restaurant, Original Patty Men, wanted to open a bar in the adjacent unit for diners to enjoy a drink while they waited for a table during busy periods.
But they were keen for Kilder to be more than just an overflow space; it needed to have a clear, separate identity, with a very different look and feel to the restaurant.
The result is a clean, crisp, sleek design, with Scandinavian influences. A soft palette of green and grey with pale wood furnishings brings much-needed light to the space.
Subtle references to the bar’s location under the arches of a railway bridge are made through the use of wall tiling and a mix of classical and contemporary lighting, brass fittings and banquette seating.
A courtyard area between the bar and the restaurant helps unite the two spaces and allows for communal outdoor drinking and dining.
