The interior features are very much pared-back industrial, with exposed heavily distressed brickwork, timber floors and a stunning tin ceiling, supplied by Andy Thornton. Hundreds of the company’s popular geometric metal tile design have been used to decorate the complete ceiling.

The tin tiles, pressed in sheet steel, sit in a plain suspended ceiling grid system, offering a quick and simple installation. They have been used here in their natural, satin steel finish coated in a clear polyurethane lacquer, to complete the desired raw, industrial feel.
