We worked with the client, Bob Ritchie and The Rebel Agency to create an evocative concept about wine exploring what a Dalston Terroir could be. Drawing on the history of the local area as both the Kings Lands- an oak filled hunting ground, and later the brick fields and brick kilns that came after, as the oak forest was cut down to excavate the clay below, we created a natural palette of materials inspired by this history. The result is Sapling, Dalston.

We worked on creating a warm sense of intimacy within the space with a defining communal island, and cosy booths on each side, complemented by soft lighting and warm mirrors. We worked with a specialist tile supplier to create unique and bespoke tiles created from reconstituted brick dust, in a palette of light natural colours. The room is panelled in rustic sawtooth finished timber where the marks of the saw are left visible. The counters and tables are made from a unique wooden terrazzo mixture that has a warm blend of exquisite timbers, the perfect complement to the wine and small plates on offer.
