Naughts + Crosses St Albans
The second bar I designed and opened in 2019.
Designed to appeal to a younger, more party-growing crowd (in contrast to the sophistication of Suckerpunch), this was a future noir-inspired mash up of God’s Own Junkyard neon and Gaspar Noe’s ‘Enter The Void’…with a 90's gaming bent (think lightboxes and arcade machines).
A challenging and uninspired space (a relatively newly built pub on a corner), forced me to work with the building’s angles and hard lines without breaking the bank.
The end result was a trippy, unique late-night spot with plenty of fun to be had.
