Reclaimed timber was at the heart of transforming this Victorian home into a cosy and welcoming pub.
Lake View Garden Bar & Restaurant was a project undertaken by designer Rita Millat to turn an 1843 Victorian house into a cosy and welcoming pub. The design brief was to create a Lake District pub with a modern twist that would make everyone feel at home. The design concept was to use an industrial style reusing and upcycling some of the house’s key features such as beams and pillars, creating a place that people would remember and come back to. One of the challenges faced in the project was the structure of the house.
The internal walls were removed to open the space and make it bigger, requiring reinforcement with steel beams. The Havwoods product used in the project was Beck Rustic from the Relik collection, chosen for its aged wooden appearance. The flooring added character and depth to the space, creating a memorable and inviting atmosphere. Adding warmth and a welcoming touch the aged wooden flooring helped to create the cosy and at-home feeling that was desired in the design brief, making it the perfect fit for the modern industrial style of the pub.
