Sky has unveiled Sky Street, its new food and beverage space designed by Sedley Place. Sky Street comprises of seven bespoke eateries, all housed within Sky's latest edition to its Osterley media campus, Sky Central.
Sedley Place has worked closely with Sky and Sky's food and beverage provider Gather & Gather, as well as alongside workplace interior designers AL-A, Hassell and PLP, to create seven new spaces that reflect the high street and modern trends in eating, rather than the traditional corporate canteens.
Central to Sedley Place's creative concept is the combination of the visual attractiveness of the food and food preparation - a feast for the eye - with the pleasurable aromas of fresh food and elements including barista-prepared coffee. All the spaces have been created with a particular focus on a materials palette that encourages relaxation, informal break-out session and longer relaxed dwell times.
Sky Street features both casual and formal dining experiences including: The Restaurant, The Dining Room, The Barn and The Shed. Sedley Place's concept is sympathetic to the Sky building's design aesthetic and its use to create a free-flowing, dynamic spaces that not only provide excellent food options, but also act as places to congregate, host informal meetings and encourage people to socialise.
"Sky has always seen food and drink as an exceptionally important part of the total work environment," commented Mick Nash, managing director at Sedley Place. "Sky wanted to avoid out-dated canteen spaces and offer a range of different options to its staff. Our response was to create a series of food spaces with inspiration taken from the high street and modern dining trends. All of the spaces we created had a particular focus on a specific material palette that would encourage relaxation, informal breakout sessions and longer dwell times."
