Albert’s Didsbury


Restaurant Design Winner

Project Title:

Albert’s Didsbury

Project Location:

Manchester, United Kingdom

Design Practice Location:

Manchester, United Kingdom

SpaceInvader designed a new, refreshed modern look and feel to mark the 10-year anniversary of Albert’s Didsbury. The client also wanted to increase the draw to the bar and enhance the alfresco dining experience.

Re-planning the interior increased the bar to incorporate bespoke booth joinery for casual dining and cocktails, while banquette seating and party tables created flexibility and maximised the restaurant dining. A sophisticated 15th Century undertone; love of symmetry, geometric patterns, colour green and encaustic tiles formed the concept alongside a nod and a wink to Uncle Albert’s original tool shed.

An earthy palette of green, brown, gold and bronze mirror create a warm and inviting environment with the introduction of planting to add softness, bringing the outside in. Within a dark space the palette and lighting create a brighter more welcoming environment whilst still feeling warm and luxurious, acoustic finishes help provide the perfect dining atmosphere.
