Project Details:

  • Project Refurbishment
  • Clients Vesta
  • Location Edinburgh, Scotland
  • Project Year 2021

Backed by SocialBite, a charity supporting the homeless, our soft refurbishment of Vesta has transformed this restaurant into a vibrant eatery located in Edinburgh’s West End.

Undertaken on a necessarily strict budget, the changes delivered sought to establish a more convivial space whilst defining specific areas for different styles of eating and drinking, from enjoying a cocktail at the small intimate bar, to private dining and catering for small and large parties alike.

A considered use of simple materials and textures accented by signature colours has transformed this small restaurant into a warm and welcoming contemporary interior. Francey Limited were responsible for the delivery of the entire project, including all fixed seating, refurbishment of existing seating and tables, floor finishes and reuse of the existing bar. Much of our work involved careful reuse of existing assets to control costs for our Client. This was a constraint that in the end helped create an interior that has integrity and thought. The result is an impact for our Client that far exceeded expectation.
