Arabica KX

Arabica KX
Kings Cross

Bluecrow began working on the empty shell which would become Arabica KX, the second Levantine inspired concept restaurant from restaurateur James Walters which is set in the retail unit of Aga Khan University.

The extensive fit-out included all fixtures and fittings, key materials used throughout the project included cast concrete to clad the bar, the bathroom sinks, and external features outside.  Stained iroko makes up the extensive joinery throughout the restaurant, ranging from wall panels, bar plinths and the large floor to ceiling bespoke shelving, right through to the bathrooms.

Things we particularly liked were the display shelving on the entrance to where the customer walks in, the stained iroko unit with sign written light boxes highlighting ingredients for sale and textured concrete skirting.

 

From Designers – Gundry+Ducker

Arabica is a restaurant in the Aga Khan building in Kings Cross London. Envisaged as a canteen for the local area, the design was influenced by the design of post war university campus buildings.
The scheme uses a simple palette of materials, brown quarry tile floors, Iroko joinery, exposed aggregate concrete and green wool curtains.

Key materials used throughout the project which included were cast concrete to clad the bar, the bathroom sinks, and external features outside.
