La Acuarima

La Acuarima is a restaurant immersed in a lake located in Rancho Avándaro, Valle de Bravo. The project is elevated by a concrete platform that hovers over the body of water. Its circular design allows for an almost 360 degree view that encourages a permanent relationship between diners and the landscape. Onnis Luque The main access is composed of a rectangular brick prism that creates a stark contrast with the circular shapes of the concrete platform and the wood cover. There’s also a secondary access that is diametrically opposite to the main one. Both access’s dispositions create a circulation axis. Onnis Luque The architectural program consists of a main saloon with a bar at its center, a perimetral terrace... More

Project • By Liqui GroupRestaurants


Demitasse is another project where Liqui was responsible for both the restaurant interior design and the build, while our creative agency Crate47 took care of the branding. Working hand in hand like this means that clients receive a fully integrated service that results in the brand and interior working in unison to create a truly harmonious brand experience. It also means that with everything being handled in one place, there is a flow of ideas back and forth between all disciplines leading to a greater degree of continuity throughout the project as a whole. Added to this is the practical aspect of Liqui taking care of every part of the interior fit out. This holistic approach was very appealing to the couple behind Demitasse who, having t... More

Verdi Restaurant

Before Liqui started the Verdi Italian restaurant interior design, our branding company Crate47 had to create the brand, part of which included finding the right name. This process was done in consultation with ourselves so that the restaurant interior and the branding would work in unison. Both had to reflect the modern approach to traditional Italian cuisine that our client wanted to promote. With their emphasis on fresh, quality produce, Verdi (meaning ‘greens’) became the chosen name. The brand’s use of different shades of green in the logo was carried through by us into the interior restaurant design itself in such things as the soft furnishings and wall coverings. As part of the sub-branding, Crate47 created a patter... More

Pier29 Restaurant

Liqui’s seafood restaurant design for Pier 29 was created hand-in-hand with our branding agency Crate47 who created a brand that fits with the nautical theme of our contemporary interior. This was in-line with the all-encompassing brief for this new hospitality venture, and together we developed a subtly branded restaurant interior design that offers a relaxed dining experience for those who enjoy good quality seafood. With the maritime theme in mind, the interior design of the restaurant combines such elements as navy blue walls and exposed timber. There’s a row of large circular mirror windows running the length of one wall that suggest oversized portholes. We created a slice of theatre with two large installation pieces susp... More

Yakinikumafia   "We created a poetic narrative drawn from the nostalgia, excitement and glamour, where the airport was considered as a highly theatrical space for humanistic exchanges." – Kenny Kinugasa-Tsui, co-founder of Bean Buro   "The restaurant was designed and constructed throughout the lock down (due to the Coronavirus), and opened just as the city began to ease its restrictions. The project's ethos was to 'ride out' the contextual challenges, entice customers and support the communities of farmers and producers." – Lorène Faure, co-founder of Bean Buro   The Brief: 'Ride It Out' Bean Buro was tasked with the design of Yakinikumafia on Hollywood Road in Sheung Wan, Hong Kong, a restaurant bra...

Wolfie's Kitchen

Located in Hove, Wolfies Kitchen, was designed by Liqui to be a distinctive restaurant interior design that reflects the great quality of food they offer.

And before anything was built our interior design team produced full virtual reality renders for the client; making it possible for them to ‘step inside’ their virtual r... More

Project • By Liqui GroupRestaurants


This relaxing and informal beach front restaurant design was conceived as a franchise model. And, once again, Liqui and Crate47’s dual involvement in this project has worked seamlessly to create a considered designer restaurant with a strong but friendly brand identity. The interior design makes full use of reclaimed materials producing a warm, relaxed environment. Utilitarian style lighting combined with dark and weathered woods creates an industrial beach shack aesthetic which is further reinforced by the use of surfboards and stylized imagery carefully placed throughout the interior. This selective choice of materials not only creates a welcoming and immersive restaurant interior design, but also satisfies requirements for an affo... More

The Organic Kitchen

Located in the heart of Buckhurst Hill, Essex, The Organic Kitchen was conceived by Liqui to be a restaurant interior design with an airy and natural feel where diners could relax and enjoy the organic food on offer. Liqui created an eye-catching interior design where the main feature is a ridged structure running through the length of the restaurant.
