Ammonite are very pleased to announce the opening of IBERICA in Glasgow. The 8th site and first in Scotland very quickly follows sites in Leeds and Victoria. Well positioned at the Corner of St Vincent St and Hope Street, Iberica is at the heart of the growing food scene within the city.
The late Victorian Renaissance commercial building designed by Burnet and Boston circa 1900 and is a former Royal Bank Building.
This listed building consists of a wonderful red sandstone ashlar with 2 pedimented Ionic porches and central arched windows on the ground floor. You can admire an exceptional balustrade and an Ionic feature with coupled and fluted columns also displaying carved friezes as well as an Art Nouveau finial.
Ammonite is delighted to be involved in this new project, again working in cooperation with the local planning authority, the landlord and internationally renowned interior designer Lazaro Rosa-Violan and his Studio from Barcelona to create an authentic, atmospheric Spanish restaurant with an appreciation of the celtic links to the northern areas of Spain.
The restaurant set on two floors has been taken back to a shell and fully refurbished. This including the basement which revealed a previously blocked up strong room, once refurbished, now provides an excellent wine room.
Again using our experience with listed buildings and conservation we have produced the fit out to the highest standard whilst maintaining the budget and finishing on time!
