Morris Jones, housed in a former furniture and carpet store on Chapel Street, was a trailblazer in Windsor. In its previous incarnation, the space was a mix of dark woods and exposed brick, giving it a dark, intimate and quite formal atmosphere. We opened up the space completely, both structurally and with colour, for a more fluid, welcoming space with three separate bars, creating a verdant urban sanctuary with cascading greenery. Working with marble, checkerboard tiles, warm local timber and soft velvets, we created a more lively, casual space with nods to the building’s Victorian history and the area’s European roots, plus the modern Japanese menu. We drew influences from lofty warehouse spaces across NY, LA and Barcelona.
