Rockpool (fish) Restaurant – IDEA 2020

Rockpool (fish) Restaurant


What is the ‘big (IDEA)’ behind this project?

Neil Perry’s desire for a more casual approach to high quality food. Bates Smart’s spatially minimalist approach included the removal of the existing sombre finishes and decorative elements to provide a clean background for vibrant feature lighting, carpets and art. A key concept was to enhance the natural light in the middle and rear dining rooms. The overall impact is a fresh, light and airy interior with elements of richness and texture well-suited to the next chapter of Rockpool.
