Pizza Express - Belfast

Restaurants & Bars

Hold the jalapenos, this pizza’s hot and fresh

Belfast’s Pizza Express needed a cosy atmosphere, to draw in more families and group bookings. We worked the existing high ceilings and surrounding glazing into the new layout, using light to increase the sense of warmth. Bright, bold colours for the fixed seating encourage diners to get comfortable. Copper fixtures and timber finishes add to that ‘by the fire’ feeling. Newspaper also plays a part in the design – as it might when you’re trying to light a hearth. The local press industry is represented in eye-catching typographic prints on both the ground and first floors.
