Clerkenwell Grind, London


grindMelbourne-based Biasol designed the latest version of the eight-location London Grind by Grind & Co 

The Clerkenwell Grind is a lofty two-story space in a 1870s warehouse located at 2-4 Old Street in Clerkenwell.

Biasol skillfully transformed it into a full-blown, all-day restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch, dinner and weekend brunches, and hosts a nightclub in the basement cellar.

The on-trend soft colours – blues and pinks – and feminine, curved shapes are balanced with rough floor boards and more angular chevron patterns. Also on-trend are the slender brass piping, oblong brass-edged mirrors and cool lighting fixtures. Curved velvet sofas and sexy neon complement the slightly retro feel.

Rind & Co is not a typical coffee chain as many of the locations are in historical buildings, some cooperate with resident recording studios (Shoredith and Tape) and host club nights.

In 2015, the company raised £1,340,000 (nearly double their £750,000 target) through crowdfunding to build a state-of-the-art coffee roastery to supply coffee to its locations. The new Grind HQ and Roastery is in Shoreditch, a few minutes’ walk from the original Shoreditch Grind location on Old Street Roundabout. Tuija Seipell.
