Italian Restaurants


Completed: January, 1970

Services: Architecture, Interior Design

Sector: Leisure

Client: Felicini / Abbeydale Hall Ltd

Self have completed several projects for the Italian restaurant chain Felicini. Previous projects have been alterations and fit outs to existing units whereas the brief for their restaurant at West Bridgford, Nottingham was for a new building, set in a sensitive residential area.

Self negotiated with the Planners and won their backing for a striking modern building. The new restaurant features a two-storey atrium with fully retractable doors on ground and first floors.

Glass Box Extension

In Manchester, having previously designed and overseen the construction of the Felicini restaurant off Whitworth Street West, Self designed a ‘glass box’ extension to the rear of the building on what used to be an outdoor terrace. The new extension now provides a light and modern space that diners can enjoy year-round, with attractive views over the canal.
