The Restaurant Group HQ

Marshalsea Rd, London SE1

A major refurbishment and extension of what was a tired 1950s building on Marshalsea Road in Southwark. The building was purchased by The Restaurant Group, a leading leisure operative, to provide a new modern headquarters to house their expanding workforce in one building.

An extension to the rear and two new floors have been added paying attention to rigid planning controls, rights of light issues and party wall matters. Together with the replacement of all the facades, the renovated building provides approximately 3,400 sqm over six floors.

As most of the ground floor is given over to one of the client’s restaurants, the office accommodation is on the five floors above. CGL undertook all the interior design elements, including detailed special joinery items, to furniture selection and procurement. In-depth space planning and client consultation enabled CGL to provide workplace solutions that matched the client’s needs, resulting in a simple, coherent and light workplace.
