Hakkasan

London, United Kingdom

This new Bruton Street outpost of the high-profile, Michelin-starred restaurant is poised to become Hakkasan’s new flagship, thanks to its innovative palette and its sultry and lavish feel. In collaboration with Guillaume Richard, Gensler designed the two-level space and served as the Executive Architect. Inspired by the bordellos of Shanghai, the journey through the restaurant is a movement through layers being slowly revealed. The ground floor’s entry sequence features a long corridor, low ceilings and luxurious baritone materials, including mahogany, stone, marble and bronze. Downstairs, the atmosphere continues and shifts, as ceiling heights soar over the two distinctly different and equally enticing dining areas.
