British Institute of Interior Design Award - Shortlisted for Office & Bar Refurbishment 2022
55 Bar and Gin School Hull

The 55 bar is part of the refurbishment of the entire building into a mixeduse space, providing workspace and breakout areas, plus a members’ bar, private roof top terrace, meeting rooms, social spaces including a juice bar and three floors of offices that can be let out.


It was important to the client for SGP to refurbish or re-use every possible element from the original building, bringing together past and future, minimising waste and making the historic fabric fit for practical use for years to come.

Taking inspiration from the gin distillation process and local history, SGP reused materials from elsewhere within the building, mixing them with deep decadent colours, luxurious seating and rich copper and bronze metalwork.
