Bonneville ceiling


These lovely reclaimed ceiling panels were acquired from The Architechtural Forum. They were pulled out of the metropole cinema in London Victoria.
They weigh roughly 600kg each which provided us with the challenge of supporting them, in dependant of the existing ceiling joists.

So with our architect we developed a structure to support them, had an engineer check the drawing and issue calculations. The result is nothing short of satisfying.
Lastly we created the surrounding panels and had a specialist painter come in to weave some magic and create a rusted arch feel to it.

Lastly we had our electrician devise a lighting system to have them lit. The lighting we’ve used is 6 x 2.4m neon tubes per panel. So 12 in total.



The bar we’re building for Scofflaw ltd will be called ‘Bonneville’ where brothers Ruairi and Mark Gilles father originated from in Southern Belgium. Belgian beer will mostly be flowing and old school Belgian cuisine will be on the menu.

The bar is in the final stages of our renovation of an big space and a lot of high end reclaiming. Here are a few sneak pics of what so far has been a fun and challenging project….
