The Bike Shed is a unique biking hub in Shoreditch, London that is so much more than a restaurant. The building is host to the restaurant its self as well as a store and even a barber shop. Hallmark Kitchens were originally approached by a Project Manager who was working with The Bike Shed owners at the time. We had previously worked together on various Aubaine projects and this time we were asked to design and develop an open Kitchen, Bar & Coffee station with the key consideration being aesthetics, as processes such as Prep and Washing would be visible to customers.
The vision was to have a linear backfitting with cooking, prep, beverages and a complimentary Pass Counter where the Dishwasher could be hidden from view as much as possible. With the kitchen being based in a railway arch, we were not however allowed to fix anything to the structure so we designed a ‘services’ cavity against which our equipment could be fitted. The Client was also very conscious of budget and the whole scheme had to be designed with one eye on flexibility and possible future mobility should the concept evolve and develop in a different direction.
"This was a very tight programme from the initial survey to completion of the install and commissioning equipment, which required almost full time day project management, this was further enhanced with the assistance, understanding and co-operation from the client and the main contractor, it ensured that the project went smoothly and was delivered and installed on time for the completion handover and within the client’s budget”
Hallmark are incredibly happy that the Bike Shed has been recognised for its unique and quirky style. We are thrilled that it has been shortlisted for the restaurant and bar design awards, as it was one of our most memorable projects due to its location and specific style.
Equipment installed at The Bike Shed kitchen included Precision Refrigeration and blast chillers, Scotland ice machines, Winterhalter warewashing equipment, Rational Combi Oven, Falcon prime cooking equipment, Gamko bottle fridges and stainless steel fabrications from Pioneer.
