Abbey Road Studios
St Johns Wood, London
The renovation of the restaurant and bar area for this iconic institution, to the design specification of Shaun Clarkson ID with made-to-measure fittings and furnishings by Barr Joinery.
The re-design brought bold 60's retro to the Abbey Road Studios bar and restaurant facility. Barr Group were commissioned to carry out a complete renovation and to manufacture made-to-measure cabinetry and furnishings. A playful array of lit, bespoke display and functional cabinetry pieces set the scene for a striking oak patterned bar front with copper fixings and made to measure table tops with copper trims. Works were carried out around a busy commercial schedule of events and recordings, with the team adapting their activity accordingly throughout the project duration.
“It is always hard for contractors to work here. Where recording is concerned no noise really means no noise. It was certainly the first refurbishment project in the 85-year history of Abbey Road Studios to run to time! We are really pleased with the results.”
