Project: Chameleon, in one of London’s most dramatic venues – the Grade I listed One Marylebone
New restaurant and multi-experiential space Chameleon wanted not only to keep its customers cool and UV protected in the summer but also warm, dry and wind-protected during the rest of the year. Our solution was to supply four MacSymo 5mx4m parasols to create one large 80sqm space with clear side panels, connected by rain gutters.
The restaurant opened in April 2021, along with fitness and wellness studios, a gallery space, a church hosting multi-sensory events, a flower market and a private space for ‘friends of the house’. Chameleon also offers alfresco dining in The Garden, where guests can enjoy a Tel Aviv-style sharing menu.
One Marylebone, formally Holy Trinity Church, was built in 1826-28 on its own ‘island’ in the heart of the capital, to the designs of Sir John Soane to celebrate the defeat of Napoleon. Soane (1753 –1837) was arguably England’s finest architect in the Neo-Classical style.
