Tramshed, London
Category: London Restaurant
Designer: Waugh Thistleton Architects

Tramshed, part of Mark Hix’s group of restaurants, has been shortlisted for this award for its sheer simplicity and avant-gardism. The grade-2 listed building was designed in 1905 as a facility for the Tramway System and today the restaurant still holds the Tramway roots in its design. The centre of the restaurant holds an astonishing Damien Hirst piece, the ‘Cock and Bull’ that Hirst created especially for the restaurant.

Take a walk downstairs to see our very own art gallery. Mark Hix is known for his love of art and now we have our very own gallery with exhibitions changing every 6 weeks. Tramshed
