DesignLSM has recently completed the interior design for Burger & Lobster – Leicester Square, helping to bring the popular concept to the exclusive location of the 5-star W hotel.
The restaurant forms part of the brand’s current expansion plans along with the recent openings of the London sites of West India Quay and Holborn.
Located a short stroll away from the bustling Soho site, Burger & Lobster Leicester Square is housed beneath the W’s striking exterior, in an arresting double height space with a vast mezzanine upper floor featuring an open kitchen and dining area.
DesignLSM designers retained some of the sites original features including the grand brass bar front, central spiral staircase and timber flooring carefully curating these elements into the brand’s unique design scheme.
Inside the restaurant a dazzling hanging light chandelier takes centre stage, designed to be evocative of the luxury hotel’s external lighting facade. The signature features of lobster tanks and bold banquette seating create an instantly recognisable connection to the Burger & Lobster brand accompanied by the new addition of a refined and relaxed downstairs bar and lounge area.
DesignLSM have worked with Burger & Lobster on all of their restaurants in the UK and internationally, helping to establish the unique brand through signature interior design elements in each of their hugely popular restaurants.
“It has been a pleasure to work with Burger & Lobster and assist them with their ambitious growth – we have relished the opportunity of developing the brand and interiors as they have expanded, creating a truly recognisable personality and engaging environment. We look forward to continuing this exciting and enjoyable journey with our client,” said Andrew Harwood, Projects Director.
