Common Ground Workshop has developed the cocktail bar, Nebula, on London City Island, United Kingdom.

Nebula is a new hybrid cocktail bar and restaurant, café, retail space, community lounge and flexible workspace, located at the gateway to London City Island.

The proposal has transformed the former restaurant and grocery space to offer a newly refurbished community-focused hub – with an emphasis on exceptional food and hospitality – combined with flexible and casual workspace facilities and a newly refurbished external terrace adjacent to the River Lea.

The interior design consists of warm and tactile materials, including stained timber, terrazzo and ceramic tiles that complement the existing double-height concrete shell – alongside contemporary light fittings and exposed services.

This project has been longlisted in the restaurant and bar interior category of Dezeen Awards 2023.
