Aqua Italia founded in Bristol in 1988 has opened its latest restaurant in Lewes bringing the total to 6 number in the Aqua group. The restaurant is situated on the old Lewes Magistrates court site.
Working with Simple Simon Design the brief was to create a stylish but relaxing environment boasting an open plan kitchen giving a sense of theatre. The contract took 9 weeks to fit out at a cost of £530,000. The challenges were working below the New Premier Inn hotel which opened in the first few weeks of the fit out which restricted our noisy works.
The site was over 3500 sq. ft. in size and design contained numerous bespoke brass metalwork features which included a brass gantry over the bar, brass balustrade to the raised floor area, feature light fittings and decorative screens. Other features included handmade Moroccan tiles to the bar front and apron, herringbone marble and wood chevron wall features.Click here to download
