About

A full interior architectural refurbishment of the basement and ground floor of a Grade II Listed Building within the Conservation Area of the prestigious Covent Garden Market Square. The site is located between two parallel streets of New Row, a historically significant street since the reign of Henry VIII, and a small alleyway called Goodwin’s Court, famously known as the “Diagon Alley” in Harry Potter Movies.

The final interior design proposal of Pacata is a result of an evolving design brief and collaborative effort between May Noradee Properties + Designs and Pacata’s brand designer based in Japan, to reflect the international heritage of “East meets West”, whilst taken into account the unique character of Covent Garden conservation area, its historical significance, cultural diversity and Old World Charms. The multi-cultural coexistence concept of the brand is visible at every level of details from interior design, decorations, music,down to the uniqueness of food and drinks menu, for a simple, unpretentious gourmet dining experience in a relaxed and engaging environment, yet friendly atmosphere.

The material palette of the interior is earthy yet industrial, making full use of one-off vintage items found in antique markets, and recycled materials found locally, upcycling them to create unique architectural features and one-off furniture pieces.
