Inspired by Californian beach cafés, London design firm Alexander Waterworth Interiors brings their own brand of microclimate design to dining at Hally’s Parsons Green, a new deli in the heart of southwest London.
Last year, in their design of Kerbisher & Malt, Alexander Evangelou and James Waterworth transformed any preconceived notions we had about fish and chip shops; this year the duo take on climate control by capturing summer inside the interiors of Hally’s Parsons Green.
