LA-Style Dining in London, Sunshine Included

Issue 80 · The Summer Bedroom · July 9, 2013

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
