DesignLSM have completed work with Red’s True BBQ on the launch of their eighth site situated in Newcastle’s intu Eldon Square. The 240-cover restaurant pays homage to the religious reverence that the founders James Douglas and Scott Munro pay to the art of barbequing. This is subtly translated in the site, through large wall graphics and the intimate ‘confessional’ areas, which include a private dining room and dedicated smokers area.
Specific design features include bespoke bike chain chandeliers, steel gas canisters and reclaimed shipped containers which have been furnished with decorative layers of wire mesh and corrugated iron. The rough materials and brash graphics combine together to create a raw and masculine aesthetic communicating to the diner the inspiration and passion that the brand has for the homeland of the true BBQ.
