Spiritland, Kings Cross, London

Situated in a double ground floor unit within the listed Granary Building in Kings Cross, Fraher have completed this project in collaboration with Spiritland.
Spiritland is a new music brand founded in London, built around excellence in culture, curation and listening. A unique hi-fidelity, hand-built sound system delivers an unparalleled audio experience with a cultural and musical programme to match. Spiritland re-frames the bar and listening experience, delivering drinking, dining, socializing and musical enjoyment in a relaxed setting.

Working with Spiritland, Fraher developed a scheme that took inspiration from the warm and atmospheric listening environments of Japanese vinyl music rooms. Imposing floor standing speakers that resemble sculptures and an informal environment that encourages music lovers to explore records and new music was the design ethos for the spaces.
Every piece of joinery was designed with Spiritland and made by Shape London, our partner fabricator, providing bespoke joinery that celebrates and presents rare collector's items as well as accessible technology to the avid listener. Comfort, precision and integrity are reflected in the use of Ash mocca, brass, concrete, red marble, linoleum and sapele faced birch plywood, to create sound studios, collectors cabinets, chef's table, retail space and bar frontage.
This unique offering spans both bar, restaurant and retail environments and includes a recording studio. Completed by an outdoor seating area made of woven timber provides a rhythmic feature which frames the entrance to the unit.

Fraher & Findlay provided a full RIBA service.
