Creation of new seafood restaurant for Michelin starred chef
"Bringing his signature style to a wider audience, The Oyster Club celebrates provenence and skill."
Faber first started working with Michelin starred chef, AdamStokes, back in 2013, designing his original pop-up concept on Bennetts Hill and his now signature, Michelin starred restaurant, Adam’s.
The husband and wife team, Adam and Natasha, embarked on this new project with a clear vision of oysters being shucked at the bar in front of customers –wanting to create a high-end casual and interactive dining concept.
The Oyster Club delivers a 30-cover restaurant and 24-seater bar, both serving a variety of top-quality seafood dishes, and of course oyster platters, all sourced from the UK.
Entrenched in the design was the philosophy of ‘a club’ – being able to regularly dine with friends in a relaxed environment. Facilitating this is the huge, curved oyster bar which is reserved solely for walk-in customers.
The design hints at the colours, textures and shapes within the sea without being too literal.
Patterns and textures echo undulating sand beds, rippling water and the scales of fish and bespoke pendants and fixed lighting take inspiration from oyster pearls and yacht rigging.
Deep navy is teamed with warm brass to give a rich, premium feel – all softened with a complementing palette of muted pearl pinks and pale blues.
