Trinity in Clapham Old Town, owned by chef Adam Byatt, has long been a favourite of Clapham locals, but when the opportunity presented itself to take over the building’s first floor, our creative director Adele was called upon to give Trinity a refresh, while creating a brand new concept for sister restaurant, Trinity Upstairs.  

The concept for Upstairs was to provide a more casual dining environment with pared back, simple materials in an easy-going trattoria style.

Food is cooked in front of customers, who can make the most of the mid-height dining and full-width bi-fold windows to feel the breeze and take in the views over Clapham common.

The original downstairs restaurant was then given a total refurbishment to elevate its look and feel to reflect its cuisine.

Adam is a British chef who focuses on producing the best British cuisine using the finest domestic produce.  The interiors of the downstairs reflect his British style with features such as banquette seating in British racing green. 

A large bar area leading to the open kitchen is a central focus and includes a fabulous in-built wine rack to showcase the best of the current wine list. 

We opened up the entire shopfront to make the most of summer dining in this pavement setting and worked in tandem with Adam’s team to ensure all service elements were carefully planned out.  

A bespoke Crittall glass fronted charcuterie and wine store was installed over the staircase to celebrate the skill and ingredients that make up the menu. 

Specially commissioned art by Kristjana Williams successfully ties the two spaces together.  

The environment of Trinity now matches Adam’s high food standards and Adam and the team received a well-deserved Michelin star a few months after the refurbishment took place.
