A Great Collaboration

Versital worked closely Faber Design, and 2G Design and Build, who project managed the build bringing the vision to life.

Alex Claridge, Chef-patron said:

“We handed a very brave, bold and detailed brief to the 2G team and they delivered against it on time and on budget. With a project like this attention to detail is paramount; the result is something that’s unparalleled in the city.”

“We were thrilled to be part of this striking project. We thought the design and colour palette put together by Faber Design were daring and different. We are always keen to push to boundaries of style and colour, and we are all extremely happy to contribute to the final result.”

Custom Made Surfaces

Versital supplied made to measure bar front panels as well as a custom bar top for the main cocktail bar in the venue. The designers opted for the marble finish ‘Stratos’, which beautifully compliments the rest of the interior.

Gemma Stockberger added:

“The marble finish chosen offers a modern look with a twist, whilst also being being fully water and stain proof – ideal for a busy venue like Nocturnal Animals.”
