The Halo Group specialises in bar design, interior design, flexible work spaces and creative production. In 2017 we were commissioned to refit the VIP bar at Printworks London.
Originally facilitating the printing presses that once delivered the Metro and Evening Standard newspapers to London, the space which now houses the VIP bar had fallen into severe disrepair as shown in the above image from our original site visit. Our brief was to provide a bar design which would elevate the room to new heights with an interior refit in keeping with the industrial look and feel of the venue.
To achieve the end result, The Halo Group stripped out the room before rewiring, re-plumping and re-rendering the walls to create a blank canvas to work with. New flooring was also laid to provide a durable foundation and a range of essential infrastructure was incorporated into the space including toilets, lighting and a new entrance and exit for crowd flow. Once prepped, The Halo Group designed and built an industrial inspired central bar unit created from black steel beams, metal mesh and LED lighting as well as a secondary long service bar. Sympathetic bar seating and general styling completed the look. It was an honour and a pleasure to be involved in this exciting project. With so many super clubs, venues and other night life spots closing their doors over the past decade - Printworks has enriched London's after hours scene and we are proud to have contributed our bar design to the overall project.
