DesignLSM recently completed Indian Accent London, located on Albemarle Street in the heart of Mayfair. The studio was briefed to create a luxurious, refined dining experience as a backdrop for the innovative Indian cuisine, referencing the color and materials of traditional Indian architecture.
Housed in a Grade II listed building, the two floor restaurant was completely stripped and re-fitted by DesignLSM. The heritage of the building was influenced the restrained exterior design. The traditional timber shopfront uses a minimal colour palette with a dark grey backdrop, projected signage and illuminated menu boxes.
On entering Indian Accent, guests are greeted in a warm and atmospheric lobby, which provides a glimpse into the main restaurant area through opulently decorated glass doors. The space is adorned with natural stone flooring, dark grey polished plaster walls and walnut joinery framed with a thin brass edging. The dominant feature is the traditional liquor display cabinet showcasing a vast array of the world's finest whiskeys.
In contrast, the main restaurant area conveys an elegantly restrained palette of materials and colors - featuring decorative jali screens, luxurious green velvet seating and authentic textured plaster walls; all of which perfectly harmonize to create a refined ambience.
A stunning spiral staircase with brass fretwork referencing traditional Indian architecture leads guest downstairs to the lower ground floor which is designed to be an intimate and inviting space ideal for private functions and diners.
