Wildwood restaurant by Design Command, Letchworth Garden City – UK

June 15th, 2016 by retail design blog

Wildwood is a small collection of restaurants that serves freshly prepared food. Our aim is simple: to serve great food delivered by friendly staff in a relaxed, homely environment. Whether you choose from the grill section, stone-baked pizza or our freshly prepared pastas, our passion for high quality dishes is the main focus across all of our restaurants.

Wildwood Letchworth Garden City was a former charity shop with quite a low ceiling and when striped out we exposed a 3.5 meter high ceiling allowing us to take full advantage of the height for our zig zag timber ceiling feature. The inspiration behind the fabrics and wallpapers we used in the restaurant was taken from the Arts and Crafts movement which in many ways helped to shape the Garden City. William Morris was the obvious choice to represent this.

Throughout the restaurant we added geometric leaf patterns with several materials and colours from the ceiling to the floor tiles. Behind the illuminated window features we designed a wallpaper collage from historical pictures of the town for the Garden city collections archive. The ground floor bar and first floor dining space are framed with hanging screens with coloured triangles that match the surrounding finishes of each floor.
