Hole In The Wall, Bristol
Originating back to the 18th century, the Hole in the Wall Bristol, is bursting with original history and character that JMDA were keen to capture within their contemporary design. Previously housing both sailors and smugglers alike, the hole in the wall was an iconic spot to keep watch out to sea. These days the pub is an opulent, yet quirky retreat situated on the picturesque waterfront in the heart of Bristol.
A cultural hub bustling with socialites, it was a perfect opportunity to enhance the day-time trade with the introduction of large dining booths both externally and internally.
JMDA paid homage to the Hole in the Wall within their design concept with features such as bespoke bric-a-brac and 3D pieces displayed in circular frames to give the representation of a sailor looking out to sea. Vibrant Seahouses situated on the adjacent hill gave the perfect inspiration for a warming colour pallet. Sumptuous, printed fabrics in circular designs were used alongside plush plain velvets to further enhance the design concept.
Keen to preserve the historical features of this sailor’s haven, original features such as timber panelling were reawakened in rich, contemporary tones. Completing the scheme are warm, brassy light fittings giving the space a premium edge.
