Wilder London is a modern British Bar, Restaurant and private dining room in Shoreditch, East London. Kirkwood McCarthy were asked to transform the existing basement space of Terence Conran’s hotel Boundary London. The fitout was to be mindful of head chef Richard McLellan’s locally sourced ethos.

A vast 30m long partition wall spans the entire length of the space and is faced with natural clay plaster that brings subtlety, warmth and an acoustic hush to the interior. The specification and expansive use of this material was to conjure an earth-like warmth that played up to the basement location of the site. Elsewhere large sisal rugs and custom made Olive.

Ash furniture continue this palette of naturally, textural and locally sourced palette. Formerly a singular long room, the existing space has been subdivided into zones using a movable clay-rendered partition and three bespoke furniture elements to each the bar, restaurant and private dining.

The restaurant combines existing, new and bespoke furniture items that are arranged to provide a varying and intimate mix of table covers. The fitout has reused and re-purposed many of the existing fitout elements including the geometric marble floor and pewter dining tables. New items were specified to compliment and transform the character of these re-purposed items.

Large assemblages of found branches and flora have been sourced from Sir Terence Conran’s Barton Court property and installed by Worm London. These floristry installations are central to each of the three bar, restaurant and private dining rooms.
