Chiltern Firehouse Restaurant

New entrance canopy for the Chiltern Firehouse

1 Aug 2016

Owned by Andre Balazs. The Chiltern Firehouse is a restaurant and hotel  located at Chiltern Street, Marylebone. The restaurant is located in what was the Marylebone Fire Station, originally called The Manchester Square fire station.
 
Constructed  in 1889 of red brick with stone dressings  it was one of the first fire stations in London. The fire station was decommissioned in 2005.
 
The Morco design team was asked to create a bespoke entrance canopy and the successful design incorporated a  unique chequered  fabric pattern in black and white  squares, which complimented the similar design of the exterior furniture. David Archer of Archer Humphryes Architects acted as lead architects on the project.
 
Located in this Grade II listed gothic Victorian building the restaurant has been sympathetically transformed by Balazs into an up market New York-style brasserie with high ceilings, hanging light fittings, large mirrors and a busy open kitchen.
 
Guests are greeted by smart  top-hatted doormen and escorted through a pretty garden courtyard to their tables.
