Meat West / Framework Studio

Located in the industrial landmark of Amsterdam West, Meat West is a smart restaurant which became a unique and attractive place for its atmosphere.

Due to the industrial heritage of the place, Framework Studio had to be creative in implementing its value and succeed in the challenge of making guests feel welcome in such a spacious venue, whilst keeping the original characteristics off the building visible.

Chic like a Parisian bistro studded with shiny tiles and nestled in a skeleton of industrial metal, Meat West offers an interior design that combines a palette of contrasting materials, technology and local craftsmanship.

Steel elements, graphic lines, high contrast of materials and colors, co-existence of smooth and rough textures, geometric shapes contribute in vibrating the space, creating a dynamic and opposite atmosphere between day and night. The metallic structure of the roof becomes the starting point to recreate vibrating textures in the space, the rails on the floor, which could not be filled on demand of the local government, to create ultra-pattern on the flat grey concrete.

The repetition of elements is reflected in the rational organization of the layout, where the in-line disposition of the tables reminds of the wagons along the rails. Iconic tables and graphic screens guarantee a certain level of privacy working as units in an open-space. Intimate and emotional feeling is made by a perfect combination between materials and lightings.

The kitchen appears to be the living heart of the restaurant where you can observe the chefs working on their creations.
