Acclaimed British designer, Guy Oliver, created the interior for Fera at Claridge’s, a series of rooms that reflect chef Simon Rogan’s style, whilst celebrating the art deco architecture.
Inspired by the constant changing of the seasons, Michelin-starred Fera at Claridge’s is a creative and natural take on modern British cuisine. This incredible restaurant builds on the award-winning approach developed by Simon at his two-Michelin-starred L’Enclume, voted Best Restaurant in the UK by the Good Food Guide 2015.
Guy Oliver admits that Fera didn’t appear to be a natural fit at first. “Interior design is about telling a story, and Fera was a challenging story to tell,” he says. But the British designer managed to tell it in spectacular fashion, highlighting both the history of the space and chef Simon Rogan’s seasonal cuisine.
The designer wanted a look that reflected both this green approach to cooking and the hotel’s stylish past. He had just six months to transform both dining room and kitchen, including all the structural work involved, such as raising the ceilings back to their original coffered glory. “No one else would have taken the job, anyway,” he says. “It was a completely crazy idea.”
According to the designer, a sophisticated lighting scheme works to ensure that the room feels fresh and natural during the day, and warm and atmospheric at night.
Guy Oliver has employed a similar approach to fine craftsmanship and detain installing a nickel balustrade, marble walls, plaster details and glazed bronze lay lights. Do you like this new design?
