Nestled amongst Kew’s natural beauty is the Victoria Plaza which houses the retail experience and café. Resolution Interiors were responsible for providing a flexible retail system that maximised the space available whilst increasing stock holding. The existing concept for the Victoria Plaza embraces natural materials such as raw wood. We designed customised units that would feel at home in this environment and also bring a contemporary edge. These contain oak effect timber back panels with contrasting blackboard shelf edge trims for signage and a conjoining black laminate base storage unit with a stainless-steel skirting.

Due to the success of the Victoria Plaza we were given the opportunity to manufacture and build the fixtures within the Pavillion Restaurant that had been designed by Ryder. This exciting new eatery will offer a fast-casual dining experience all year round. Dishes will be produced in an open kitchen and customers are able to watch dishes being freshly prepared on the grill by Kew’s chefs. The Pavillion Restaurant required a range of fixture items that complimented the interior and a gave retail environment to a defined area. In addition, we also had to provide matching unitary for the bar shelves and waiter stations designed by Boyd Thorpe Associates.
