london-based sella concept has joined forces with architecture studio wilson holloway for the design of omar’s place, an intimate restaurant and bar serving mediterranean cuisine and exotic cocktails. occupying the ground floor and basement of a grade II-listed victorian corner block in london‘s pimlico neighborhood, the interior combines a palette of rusty hues with terrazzo surfaces and precious details such as velvet seating and gold accents.

sella concept and wilson holloway collaborated with omar shaaban, a hotel and restaurant operator in egypt and turkey, to transform the derelict site into a warm hospitality experience. against a backdrop of terracotta-hued walls and timber slats, the ground floor splits into a bar and lounge area on one side, and a more formal dining setting on the other. the light-washed, voluminous space is characterized by radial lines and circular motifs, and furnished with streamlined carl hansen chairs and asymmetrical brass pendant lamps that call to mind solar phases.
