Run For The Hills designs new Soho restaurant & bar, Scarlett Green


For the first time Run For The Hills has collaborated with the client, Daisy Green Group, whose London portfolio includes cafes and restaurants. Run For The Hills worked closely with the clients to create the colour-filled, Australian-urban-twist vision for Scarlett Green, Daisy Green’s biggest and most ambitious venue yet. Creating a 70s meets Downtown Deco concept design look and feel.

Scarlett Green draws upon Melbourne and Sydney’s food culture to deliver an all-day cafe, bar and restaurant, with a laid-back glamorous vibe. In the evening, the space turns into a buzzing late night cocktail bar and restaurant with live acoustic sets and DJs.

Run For The Hills’ design of the ground floor is bright and airy. The bar is elegant and fresh, featuring a mix of brass, rattan, walnut, black and white marble. Deco-curved mirrors shape the simple back bar shelving.

Creative Director, Anna Burles, of Run For The Hills says:

“We got to have lots of fun with fabrics and colour in Scarlett. Filling the ground floor with armchairs in a mix of velvet and corduroy, coral, red, and soft pink cocktail stools. Which we either tasseled or set upon a solid retro brass base.”

She added “Our distressed wall design morphs and changes throughout both floors, and went through rounds of prototyping and sampling to get just the right mash-up- layered feel. On site, it was hand-applied by a team of specialist decorators across four days during the install. Crafted from a mix of paint, sand, plaster, some sections in the basement also feature sections of torn wallpaper. We love it and think it gives the space a London-meets- Lower-East-Side-vibe.”
