THE FAT RADISH SOUTH, Savannah GA
We love this restaurant and were so excited when they wanted to be a part of our building.
For the design, we wanted this space to have nods to their original NYC outpost, but with a southern ease to it all. We used wooden ceiling fans, rattan shades, ceramic tile, porcelain milk glass and gorgeous warm plaster walls to transport you to a slightly slower and gentler South. Perhaps my favorite part fo the space is walls… with the weathered grey/green tinted plaster (by the talented Master of Plaster) that mimics Radish’s focus on vegetables.
Originally a pharmacy, the space was stripped back to its bare structure, which included existing stone arches and large windows - it was certainly hard to cover that old brick in drywall! But was a must with all the new electrical and plumbing to get the historic space Restaurant ready.
We created custom handmade, white porcelain lights with English ceramicist Amy Frankie Smith which give off the most beautiful warm glow against the textured plaster walls. With most millwork corners curved, soft leather banquettes and porcelain milk glass lights glowing, you will want to cosy up in the corner with an icy cocktail and delicious locally-sourced plate of food!
Additionally, we sourced a custom green and white porcelain mosaic floor tile that cover the floor at the entrance, where a vintage wooden standing reception desk rests, and wrap around the marble and walnut bar.
