Kudu is a 52-cover restaurant on Queens Road, Peckham serving creative Modern European plates with South African influences. It is the first restaurant from couple Amy Corbin and Patrick Williams.

Alessio Nardi of A-nrd studio worked closely with the owners to create a warm, lived-in feel with reclaimed materials, earthy colours and accents of greenery.

The walls, when stripped, revealed a beautiful patchwork of old materials: tongue and groove wood paneling was interrupted by concrete renderings which were cut through old bricks stacks and tiles.

“We immediately fell in love with the randomness of the finishes and decided to keep them all, revising the design scheme to play with these beautiful finds.“ says Alessio Nardi.

The wall patchwork has been toned down with a coat of rose brown paint, contrasting with the burnt umber ceiling and reclaimed African mahogany parquet flooring.
Forest green velvet banquette seating runs the length of the main dining space with tables in antique brass or rose limestone.

A 1920s holophane chandelier hangs over the antique brass topped kitchen counter with six seats (kept for walk-ins), where diners can watch Patrick and his team at work.
The front counter is cladded with juniper green hand glazed tiles which spill onto the adjacent walls adding a colour accent to the concise colour palette.

The Orangerie with tall tables, antique mirrors, raspberry velvet stools and handmade concrete floor tiles, is at the back, leading to the outdoor garden which will open later this Spring.
