The Star Inn The City

“Bring the Star Inn at Harome into the City of York”

This was our challenge for transforming the Lendal Engine House into The Star Inn The City restaurant for award-winning chef, Andrew Pern and his business partner Justin Brosenitz.

We designed within the framework of the listed, pre-Victorian building and also a new glazed extension, The Garden Room. These areas were completely opposite in style and we had to ensure they both felt equally as inviting to a Star customer. Now the two areas flow seamlessly into one another.

Our spatial designs and joinery detailing have created a space that is both practical for the staff and welcoming for the clients. Our attention to detail has led us to design all the bespoke joinery and feature lighting.

We worked with a pallet of warm, bold colours and added an eclectic mix of artwork, props and fabrics to give a quirky feel to this interesting building and bring a taste of country living into the heart of the city.
