Local colour: Nando's gets creative in Scotland

15 : 11 : 2012 Marc Delaye : Victorian : Flexthetics

Dundee – Housed in a historic setting, the new Nando’s outlet in Dundee is an attention-grabbing fusion of the restaurant’s South African origins and its location in the city’s central Nethergate district.

Shoreditch architecture firm BuckleyGrayYeoman designed the restaurant for Nando’s, bringing out the industrial qualities of the Grade II-listed Victorian building. The restaurant’s kitchen is inside a 40-feet shipping container, like many small businesses in South Africa. The space also includes a graffiti mural by Scottish artist Marc Delaye and a colourful tubular light fixture.

The Dundee outlet is a great example of a mass-market adaptation of the Heavy Industry design direction we described last year. The colourful accents in the space also reference the playful side of Flexthetics.
