We’ve had a long relationship with Nandos so it seems particularly appropriate that our first images of Havwoods products in use in the US should be from Nandos.
We’re delighted to say that, in the last few years, we’ve supplied well over 200 Nandos restaurants all over the world and here are two of the most recent – Fairfax Virginia and Washington DC. Both locations have been designed by Aria Architects of Chicago and draw inspiration from he colourful, bold patterns and woven goods associated with South African culture. The Fairfax restaurant, however, introduces corrugated metals and steel-framed furniture, reminiscent of the build environments of the South African townships, whilst in Washington the design intention was to stay true to the character of the building and utilise the magnificent two-story lighting sculpture as a focal feature.
“Havwoods was recommended by our client, as they have used Havwoods’ products in UK Nandos locations. We ultimately chose them due to the product appearance and quality, in addition to the economical pricing.” Aria Architects
In both locations there designers’ aimed for a more refined look from the flooring, choosing dark wood planks with texture from our Hanley range, rather than rustic reclaimed boards.
