Nick’s practice Blue Arc was commissioned to design Jamie Oliver’s flagship restaurant, Fifteen. The building housed the restaurant, bar, delicatessen and chef school, as well as offices above.
As a principal of the studio, Nick played a lead role all aspects of the design and construction processes.
The project was high-profile thanks to Oliver’s celebrity and the fact that the entire process was filmed by Channel 4 for the fly-on-the-wall TV series Jamie’s Kitchen.
The project required the renovation of a gallery on Old Street, transforming the building to accommodate a fine dining restaurant, top-of-the-range kitchen and bakery at basement level, and a delicatessen and bar upstairs.
With Blue Arc, Nick also renovated Fifteen’s 20-person offices in the building’s upper storey.
