Sketchbook: Kilder

Set within a railway arch, Kilder takes a more refined approach to the typical industrial aesthetic. Attention to detail and a pared-back materials palette underpin the design for this craft-beer led bar in Digbeth, Birmingham.

The sister venue to burger haven Original Patty Men, in the adjacent arch, Kilder has evolved from a place to get a drink when visiting OPM to a destination in its own right.

The design takes affordable materials, such as standard concrete paving slabs on the bar front, and elevates them through a consideration of detail. The bespoke lighting scheme has an understated industrial aesthetic, in matt black, to contrast with pale tones of plywood and polished concrete.
