Rakes restaurant and bar was a redevelopment of an existing area within the Andes hotel, just around the corner from Liverpool Street Station.

It was a specially challenging project as the whole of the area was listed and therefore all cabling and lighting had to be fixed with that in mind. The feature lighting was extensive and controlled by Mode Tiger Dimming packs throughout.

Work was undertaken while the hotel was fully functional, so noise levels had to be kept to a minimum and deliveries had to be carefully scheduled into the programme in advance.

The project was a complete transformation of the space and was handed over on time.
