Matthew Norman - The Guardian January 2007
"Le Café Des Anglais which has as its name implies seeks to combine the all-day bustle of a grand, art deco Parisian brassierie with fundamentally English cooking"
Caswell were employed to design build and commission the ventilation and air conditioning systems to provide customers and staff within the restaurant and kitchen with a quality environment in which to dine and to work.
This was a turnkey project for Caswell, from the early stages of outline design through to commissioning of the systems and finally the restaurant opening. Our designers worked closely with Richard Blandy of Stiff and Trevillion to provide a quality environment whilst minimising the impact on the Architects design scheme.
