Working at Jestico+Whiles and Christian Liagre, Sam Cooper worked on the design detail of Michelin-starred restaurant Hakkasan. Still one of London’s most highly celebrated restaurant interiors, the fusion of modern design with traditional Chinese motifs is evident in the dark wood screens, rich materials, and the use of lighting through illuminated walls and lanterns. A high level of design was paramount to every element of this project, transforming what was a large space into an intimate yet innovative interior.
An intricate fusion of east meets west.
To create intimacy in a large basement space.
To deliver precise and outstanding design detail in a compressed programme
One of the most celebrated restaurant interiors in London, which remains largely unchanged since completion.
