How we can help – Post Covid-19

Harrison can help your business in a post COVID world

We understand the challenges that many businesses face in coming out of the lockdown, not least because we don’t yet know exactly what the detailed parameters for opening are going to be. We recognise that in the short-term capital investment is not something many people are thinking about and that repairing balance sheets and preserving cash is likely to be most people’s priority.

HERE TO HELP

We know many businesses could benefit from short term assistance in reconfiguring their restaurant spaces to be acceptable to the social distancing expectations of the guest, whilst still retaining some sense of the ambience and personality of their once bustling, busy restaurant.

Stay. Socialise. Relax – Islington’s Best

In the second of our review of recent projects, we’re turning our attention to hotel F&B.

We were approached by a global hotel chain to re-design a ground floor restaurant and bar with a proposition that narrated the history and background of Islington.

Our design solution offers subtle references to the local history of Coventry build the foundation of the concept, whilst remaining contemporary in style to complement the architecture of the space.  Delicate elegance, is a contemporary take on the principles of Georgian design, overlaid with contemporary pattern and colour, to generate a warm and inviting environment. Quirky features, from the Isle of Capri fit-out, allow truly unique design elements to personalise the space.

Warm tones, curved detailing and soft upholsteries generate a relaxed, but elegant restaurant space to suit dining.  Bespoke ceiling features, screens and artwork create an individual narrative, unique to the site and its local history.

Punchy signage enhances street level presence and ensures high impact to passers-by, residents, event and casino customers.  Quirky internal wayfinding creates an engaging and more personal arrival, whilst a relaxed check in sets the tone.

Adapting to the new normal – The Harrison guide to the challenges facing the hospitality sector and how design can assist in finding solutions

Adapting to the New Normal

Over the past few weeks, Harrison has been researching, reviewing and formulating a number of potential practical solutions geared towards the challenges that new social distancing rules may create across the hospitality sector.

This has forced us to think differently to how we have traditionally developed floor plans, interiors and back of house areas for clients. Nothing concrete has yet been outlined by the government on specific guidelines and we are still on a daily basis building a better understanding of the long-lasting effects of this virus.

Our guide, titled Adapting to the new normal, includes our thinking and ideas about possible strategic approaches, re-opening restaurants, dealing with customer anxiety, communication, adapting operational processes, affordable and flexible design solutions, dealing with high contact areas, external dining areas, regulations and advice and the potential role of technology.
