Landivar Architects have collaborated with the Gingerman Restaurant Group to deliver the fit-out and interior Architecture detailing of the new build ‘Flint House’ restaurant, as part of the broader regeneration of the Hanningtons Estate, sited in the South Lanes, Brighton, Sussex. The restaurant, cocktail bar and terrace are positioned over two floors and located along a newly formed ‘twitten’ within the historic lanes. With visually open kitchen and counter level dining, the interior, incorporates commercial kitchen apparatus, with bespoke furniture, bars and hand crafted detailing. The interior forms a welcoming, open and light space for informal and convivial dining.

The vast majority of elements within the design are bespoke and procured locally by highly skilled crafts people. This includes the construction of the bar counter and kitchen on the ground floor, finished with patinated zinc, matt black shell tiles and marine green glazed horizontally stacked hand made tiles.

The upper floor area houses a smaller cocktail serving counter, W.C. facilities, additional seating and access to the roof top terrace. Again, all with bespoke detailing to provide a light and contemporary dining experience.
