Kensington Place, opened in 1987, was highly influential in the future of restaurant design in Britain.The architect was Julyan Wickham who talks to Matthew Fort about the challenges of restaurant design.
Kensington Place was the first of its kind. It's glass facade brought the city into the restaurant; it was uncompromisingly loud, buzzy and open to the world. The conversation between Julyan and Matthew ranges widely over issues of architecture and the restaurant scene. Riveting stuff.
