candela

 

If Candela was a woman, she would be described as feisty, passionate and impulsive whereas her sister restaurant, Alloy, would be described as reserved and elegant. The bold patterns and colours of this space transport diners to a new world of vibrancy and flavour. Candela is figurative and decorative with an emphasis on ornament.  The space has a sense of hot-blooded passion driving the interiors, with a mix of eclectic patterns and saturated hues.  It references turn of the century luxury trains and airship travel, but re-imagined in a contemporary way. Lacquered panels, hand-painted concrete tiles, and a gallery wall of off-kilter art give the space the layers of texture and graphics that make it stand out.
