The VIVI restaurant is part of the revival of the Centre Point Development. It integrates into the fabric of London and occupies what was an empty unused space
The name VIVI is a nod to the birth year of Centre Point; repeated roman numerals for “66”. The design concept took inspiration from the “Swinging London”, a celebration of its culture, paying homage to the art, fashion and design of that era. The client's brief was to create an all-day brasserie with a British provenance. The space was to incorporate bars, relaxed dining and lounges. Divided into four zones, each having a distinct atmosphere and palette that harmonises and coordinates with each other.
The design is bold, fun, and approachable but also aims to be elegant with a timeless quality. The restaurant is to be a destination and anchor venue in the revived iconic Centre Point redevelopment. The design respects its context, a Grade II listed elevated long linear space with full height glazing on either side. Planning required the space to remain as transparent as possible. The design aimed to respect and enhances the existing heritage elements without detracting from them.
It is a new venue located in the heart of the theatre district and offers an all-day dining experience for both Londoners and visitors to the city. It aims to promote great British designs and its modern food culture and act as a positive contribution to the social, cultural and economic character of the local area of St Giles.
