Open Kitchen

Hoxton is arguably one of London’s trendiest neighborhoods, with its plethora of stylish bars and hip residents. Open Kitchen fits in effortlessly with this environment.

The concept was to create a green oasis in gritty Hoxton, using fresh herbs to inform the graphic and interior design, and reflect the fresh food on offer. A ‘living wall’ of herbs lines the new entrance ramp. The terrace, providing a rare outdoor social space in Hoxton, is screened by herb-filled planters.

Jestico + Whiles designed the restaurant’s branding, including the menus, signage, wallpaper and colour scheme.

Upon closer inspection the design reveals a sense of humour: the wallpaper features archetypal Hoxton folk, and decorative plates - referencing the historic trend to display plates on walls - are given a contemporary twist and emblazoned with the restaurant’s graphics.
