Kracka has revisited its interiors work at Virgin Hotel’s London nightclub and restaurant venue, Kensington Roof Gardens. The group’s original design in 2001 involved adding a glass pavilion to the Grade II-listed site. The new brief was to make the space adaptable for other uses, such as conferencing. The ‘interplay’ with the roof gardens has been enhanced and screens introduced to create various ‘mini-areas’. The furniture emphasises ‘lounging’, with Love Bucket loungers, Hunter chaises longues and richly tactile wall claddings.
