Architect Waugh Thistleton is designing the interiors for The White House, a restaurant, bar and private member’s club that will open in Clapham, south London, in March. The venue is a white three-storey Victorian building, with each level offering a different service. The ground floor is being divided into two spaces. The front of the house will be a cafÃ©/ bar and the back bar will have a lounge area with sunken, raised and booth seating. The private member’s lounge will be on the first floor, while the second floor will house a restaurant and three private dining rooms. The White House has been set up by Atomic and, according to joint managing director James Lohan, aims to attract the ‘slightly older, discerning crowd that doesn’t want to travel to the West End’.
