BuckleyGrayYeoman’s latest design venture for Nando’s has opened in the heart of Glasgow’s shopping and leisure district. Nando’s Glasgow is BuckleyGrayYeoman’s second restaurant in Scotland for the brand, and one of an ongoing series throughout the UK. The 98-cover restaurant packs a punch of exciting colours and textures to create a lively landmark on a prominent corner location. BuckleyGrayYeoman’s design uses reclaimed materials and commissioned artwork to create an eclectic space that communicates the chain’s Portuguese-South African heritage. The highlight feature of the restaurant is a mezzanine balcony clad with reclaimed wooden window shutters sourced from a salvage company in South Africa. The playful, layered effect created by this feature, with its mix of sun-bleached colours and textures, informs the design throughout the space.
