The Leeds all-day bar and restaurant is located in the heart of the city on Greek Street. Described as a Victorian botanical hideaway, the restaurant serves seasonal British fare as well as experimental drinks at its bar. The interior décor is an avant-garde design inspired by Professor Virginia K. Stevenson’s study of birds.

Following on from the existing Lost & Found design in Birmingham and the concept inspired by a ‘fictional’ professor that would be unique to each site, the brief was to move this design concept forward to suit a city centre cocktail bar with a ‘New York’ chic element whilst retaining the original elements of the reference house in Birmingham such as the hidden bar and Victorian/traditional style.

The client wanted to ensure that there was a connection between all the different areas and that the whole site transitioned easily from day to night trading.
