We were approached by owner Sean Martin to turn an empty shell in north London into a smokehouse and bar. Together we came up with the name One Sixty which is based on the optimum inner temperature (160˚F) of meat when smoking.
Smoke and charcoal was the uniting concept used throughout the interior and graphic design and began with the incorporation of a wood charring technique similar to the Japanese Shou-sugi-ban method on the interior and exterior of the building. We designed and art directed all aspects of the job including the branding, interior, website and photography.
Steve Ryan photographed some of London’s top butchers to adorn the walls and also shot all of the food photography for PR and online marketing. Jack Barnes photographed the interior and exterior of the space. All the production and sourcing of the numerous materials that went into the space was achieved by Anita Gohil.
