Nowicka Stern has designed the interiors for a second Gate vegetarian restaurant, which opens this month in London’s Belsize Village. The restaurant aims to evoke a sense of ‘agricultural utilitarianism’ to reflect the natural health-food menu, says Nowicka partner Oded Stern-Meiraz. The designs include exposed brick work, rusty pipes, exposed light bulbs and a double-height barnyard-style door. Seating includes canteen-type benches, two-person tables and sofas in alcoves. The restaurant identity has been created by graphic designer Steven Kingsley.
