The coveted Supreme Award went to:

Hayes Common Eatery

Designer: Material Creative

Shopfitter: New Image

Judges comments: 
"A really nice approach to refurbishing the 'old'. This concept lets the original style/character shine through and brings a contemporary edge to the interior by delivering a light bright space with clever little details alongside the statement bar. Finishes combine beautifully for an honest design, furniture carefully considered and combined. This feels effortless and brings a new character born out of the old."

"Love it. Love the orange door and coffee machine and internal colour scheme overall. A controlled eclecticism throughout with the mixture of exposed natural walls and timbers balanced with colour scheme and treated finishes."
