The Ivy Asia, St Paul’s London

Our brief for the newly opened Ivy Asia restaurant overlooking St Paul’s Cathedral was to help create a beautiful, experiential and immersive environment.

This extensive project involved multiple bespoke wallpapers depicting detailed narrative scenes set with rich gold and metallic finishes in flamboyant colours. The huge 35 metre long dragons that race across the ceiling are finished in a shimmering red and gold leaf designed to be visible from street level below.

The surrounding restaurant ceilings are wrapped in our black and gold leaf finish developed specifically for this project and overlaid with stalks, monkeys, owls, parrots and pheasants. Japanese koi carp are set into the ceiling of the private dining room in lustrous blues, golds and greens. This richness of detail and colour flows into all aspects of the finished scheme, from the fabrics to the under-lit agate stone floor.
