The Magazine Restaurant wins Restaurant and Bar Design Award 2014

From over 800 entries, the Magazine Restaurant has won the award in the Restaurant or Bar in Another Space category.

The Magazine Restaurant opened in November 2013 within the new extension of the Serpentine Sackler Gallery. The Gallery gives new life to a former 1805 gunpowder store. With 900 square metres of new gallery, restaurant and social space, the Sackler is the Serpentine Gallery’s second space; extending its popular programme of public exhibitions and events.

Designed to complement the solidity of the existing 1805 classical building with a light, transparent and distinctly contemporary space, the new extension is home to The Magazine Restaurant. Its interior is a bright, generous, open space that enhances the Serpentine Sackler Gallery with a new cultural and culinary destination. Natural light floods in from all sides and through the five steel columns that support the tensile fabric roof and open at the top to act as light scoops, while the curvature of the roof of the animates the space with its fluid, sculptural form.

The Serpentine Sackler Gallery was also a finalist in the AJ Retrofit Awards this year.
