Listen up, folks - there's another big Boxpark design nomination in the works. This time, Boxpark Croydon's Wine&Deli has been shortlisted in the Restaurant Design category of the SBID Awards!
The SBID International Design Awards recognises the crème de la crème in the design industry throughout a range of spaces, including residential, retail, hotels, bars, clubs, restaurants and even healthcare. This year's judging panel is comprised of some of the biggest industry leaders - Sir Michael Dixon, Director of the Natural History Museum; Marek Reichman, Aston Martin's Design Director and Chief Creative Officer, and Kevin Mau, the Senior Creative Director at Boeing, to name a few.
Wine&Deli may be loved for their delicious beverages, small plates and sizeable sarnies, but they also happen to be one of the most striking units at Boxpark Croydon. The company behind this bold and faithful design was Avocado Sweets. You may recognise them from their sterling work in transforming Barrio East's garden into a vibrant oasis. Before Boxpark was even a murmur in Croydon, Wine&Deli's founders, Adam, Dan and Tom, were already rocking the best burgers in the borough with Brgr&Beer; so, Avocado Sweets decided to bring the heart and soul of Croydon into their plans for Wine&Deli. The walls are plastered with stylish posters referencing the food and drinks on offer, as well as incredibly striking images from Gavin Kinch's 'The Town That Love Built' collection.
We know you love Wine&Deli - we've seen you enjoying some fine wines on a Friday, Saturday...Sunday...Monday - every day. We've seen you chow down on those beastly sandwiches. We've seen you Instagram-ing their restaurant. So now, it's down to you! If you want to see Wine&Deli scoop the Design Award this summer then you need to get yourself over to SBID, register and vote! You have until 25 August, so the clock's-a-ticking!
Do it for Wine&Deli!
Do it for Croydon!
Do it for giant, delicious, rustic sandwiches!
Wine&Deli embodies all that is good about the changing face of Croydon - good people coming together to enjoy their town. Croydon is evolving and it's wonderful to see how that is being recognised. Boxpark Croydon is proud to be the home of Wine&Deli, a place that guarantees good times and good vibes.
