A CHIC contemporary bistro has been unveiled in a pretty coastal area.

Sanderson Weatherall has completed the redesign of a new contemporary bistro within the coastal area of Cullercoats.

Brown’s Salt House is the latest offering to be relaunched on to the market after a programme of works carried out by the firm’s architectural and building consultancy teams.

The former amusement arcade has undergone an extensive refurbishment to transform a disused unit into an attractive bistro. Its owner, Jo Bulch, already has several successful restaurants in the area and wanted to develop a new stand-out restaurant brand and provide an eye-catching setting for her clientele.

Sanderson Weatherall’s building consultancy and architectural teams worked in unison to help realise the development.

Lee Sanderson of Sanderson Weatherall’s architectural team, said: “We were commissioned to help realise Jo’s aspirations and provide a one-stop service which included all aspects of interior design, project management and contract administration.

“The initial design brief had some complex aspects of execution. The bistro’s interior needed to be comfortable and relaxing, appealing to customers wanting anything from a day-time coffee to an evening meal.

“Our team was quick to offer suggestions as to how we could design a versatile setting to operate as both a day and night-time venue.

“The result is a warm, tranquil environment which provides a perfect backdrop to the exciting food on offer. Through the use of a range of materials including reclaimed timber flooring, slate, retro wall coverings and intelligent lighting, Brown’s Salt House really is an exciting addition to the North East’s culinary circuit.”

Sanderson Weatherall has a wealth of experience in the design of licensed premises covering restaurants, bars and hotels. It offers an inclusive service, working to refurbish existing properties or complete new developments, specifically catering for the licensed trade.

Lee added: “In today’s market, it is vital for a licensed property’s environment to work as hard as possible to appeal to its clientele and complement the quality of service and product range on offer.

“In this instance, we delivered an extensive service to create a truly inspirational space and achieve our client’s business goals.”
