Ka Pao Restaurant
INTERIORS: Interior Design
Mosaic Architecture and Design
MOSAIC Architecture + Design has given Ka Pao, the new restaurant housed in the basement of the recently converted Botanic Gardens Garage on Vinicombe Street in Glasgow’s West End, a distinctly South East Asian look and feel to complement its menu.
Following the success in designing sister restaurant Ox & Finch, Ka Pao is a 200 capacity bar Restaurant located within the basement unit of the Grade A listed Botanic Garden Garage development.
Thanks to existing and reclaimed white ceramic brick walls and a full elevation of crittal style glazing running down the length of the restaurant, the space is unusually bright and airy for a basement unit.
An industrial mix of white-washed concrete soffits, galvanized steel services, poured cement floors softened with live planting, reclaimed furniture, decorative and intelligent lighting contrast with bold pops of colour, earthy hand fired and glazed tiles, creating a vibrant colourful and richly illuminated interior that has both a juxtapose and always-been there relationship with the building.
