Aqua is a contemporary Italian restaurant, serving fresh, locally sourced food across multiple venues throughout the South West.
The first Aqua restaurant was founded in Bristol in 1998, and it remains a successful independent family business to this day. Over the years, the family has expanded to several locations around the South West including their Portishead venue - which recently found itself in need of a renovation. Our client was no longer happy with the interior of Aqua Portishead as it had begun to feel outdated - we were brought in for a fresh refurbishment to the whole venue, and given just three weeks until the planned opening of the new-look restaurant.
We started this project by removing the furniture and stripping the flooring. We started rebuilding from this now empty aqua from the floor up, laying modern grey floor tiling in place of the aged wooden vinyl flooring. The walls were also something that needed refreshing - we fitted new timber wall features and gave the venue a fresh coat of paint. Electrical upgrades were also crucial for this building, and necessary for the new aesthetic including the sleek countertop lighting of the new oak cladded bar.
We also undertook the redecoration of the outside seating area, providing a new look inside and out – just in time for re-opening.
