Lakeside by DL Design Studio

Mixology North21 Project of the Year Finalist: Bar & Leisure Interiors


1 min read

Renovated and refurbished during 2020 and 2021, Lakeside successfully combines the best of Victorian industrial heritage with statement and respectful contemporary design. Originally built in 1873, the building was originally Bestwood Pumping Station, part of a network of steam powered pumping stations designed and built to bring high-pressure naturally filtered water to Nottingham.

The venue delivers history, atmosphere alongside quality food and drink. The design’s layout, finish and detail provide the guests with an experience in which they can passively or actively appreciate the historical beauty of the building. On entry, the spaces are grand, remaining pure in their original form, allowing guests to appreciate the majestic nature of the building. As the spaces naturally transition the guests are rewarded with inviting glimpses of different areas within, rewarding intrigue and curiosity. This carries through to the tactile nature of the building, with brass handrails and solid timber doors reassuring the guests of the quality of the work. And for those who care to delve deeper will receive the pleasure of the subtle detailing qualities, from bar front to mirror, from architrave to frieze.
