Heston Blumenthal’s The Perfectionists’ Café designed by leading hospitality interiors specialist Afroditi Krassa is now open at Heathrow Terminal 2.
It is spectacular, with the design truly driving and defining the dining experience.
· Design cues and elements that can translate to the home which feel really fresh – with a nostalgic nod to the bygone glamour of the 1960s and 1970s.
· The spatial arrangement is based on sensorial experiences and setting a different ‘pace’ across the restaurant. The front of the restaurant is quick and dynamic, combining high sittings, loose flexible tables and hard surfaces such as tiles and marble.
· Customers can enjoy a quick shared plate or cocktail at the over-sized bar.
· As customers progress into the space, the pace slows down to a more relaxed dining experience, away from the hustle and bustle of the terminal.
· The finishes are warmer and softer. Key seats in the house are the observer booths from which customers can see the planes taking off and landing and start their journey in true style.
· The kitchen is divided in zones: the ice cream parlour offers Blumenthal’s iconic liquid nitrogen ice cream, a first in an airport.
· The main feature of the kitchen is the exposed wood fired oven, again, a first within an airport
