The grade II listed building retains many of its original features, including a carved leaf design which is now incorporated into the bar interior.
Armourcoat’s Koncrete polished plaster finish has been used to great effect on the bar front with recessed logo. Koncrete is an urban range of polished plaster colours and finishes designed for contemporary projects. The range offers a wealth of design options to achieve a distinctive modern look including distressed effects or recessed ‘shutter’ markings.
In addition, Armourcoat PPX was used outside the building to repeat the restaurant logo design. PPX is a low maintenance, durable external limestone render system that can create stunning honed and textured stone like finishes for both new build and renovation projects.
Glh Design Team comments: “The look and feel for The Soak has been designed to encompass the building’s period features and emphasise the incredible space we have available in this unique venue, and the delicate leaf interior design that has been used throughout is reflective of the beautifully carved foliage on the building’s Victorian heritage. The space includes four distinct ‘zones’, which enables guests to flow throughout different areas of the venue seamlessly, from day to night, from breakfast to cocktails.
“We were delighted to work with Armourcoat on this project, and the use of polished plaster finishes to the entrance wall and bar front adds a modern twist to the design. The team at Armourcoat have enabled us to make an entrance with an impact and the rough textured finish on The Soak logo is such an impressive contrast to the smooth concrete of the finish on the wall.”
