Following a successful relationship working as Architects for Le Bistrot Pierre in the New Cooperage development at Royal William Yard, the restaurateurs commissioned Gillespie Yunnie Architects to design the interior fit out for their second venture in the South West.

The beachfront location and spectacular views of Torbay informed the interior design, where we combined classic French bistro elements and brand essentials, with vibrant and often kitsch seaside elements. Split over two levels, the variation in section informed the zoning. Rich blue and grey leathers, banquette seating, and small tables create a formal and intimate dining room at first floor. At street level, layers of activity draw customers into the bustling bar space. Splashes of yellow, high ceilings, exposed concrete surfaces combined with bold lighting create a vibrant and fun space, which can be enjoyed throughout the day.
