Jim’s is a light-flooded restaurant in an industrial building with a courtyard extension in Clapton. The space of the restaurant is extended in length, reaching out into the courtyard of the former ice-cream factory.  One of the main characteristics of this space is the functional window strip running along the entire length of the restaurant wall just beneath the roof. This lengthy window is a reference to the former courtyard it is situated in – this is highlighted by further windows and two linear planters along the lateral openings. To emphasise the old industrial use of the building, the new slanted roof is a reticular steel structure. The floor is made by Italian wood chippings and the furniture takes inspiration from the materials and tones found at the site in it’s original state: antique pink and dusty blue recall the old taste of the ice cream factory. The restaurant adaptation contains 40 seating places, a bar, a tasting area, and a 1950s American styled area. The atmosphere is laid-back and tempting, but the kitchen means business: it is managed by a local yet renowned chef of the London restaurant scene.
