The interior of what used to be a ski rental shop has been gutted and we’re well under way with the transformation into a modern and lively eating space.
Much of the interior design requires a new wooden framework to enable us to create the desired effect.
A running theme throughout the space will be the use of reclaimed materials and quirky objects to form an interesting and inviting environment.
Much of our reclaimed wood has been retrieved from old pallets found in the local area. These have been sanded down a little and will be used as cladding around the breakfast bar and the front counter. To contrast the pallets, we have a full length blackboard wall which will be used to display the menu and artwork.
The next part of the project will be the floor. After stripping the carpet and the glue beneath, we’ll be left with a tiled floor which will then be painted a dark grey and stencilled!
We’ll have more project updates coming very soon…
Just before leaving the UK for a summer back in Tignes, we managed to visit our friends at ‘Drawn by the Light’ to prepare some laser engravings for the interior of the cafe. One of the first installs of the build will be a timber clad bar front made from reclaimed pallet wood.
Here are some previews of the work so far:
