Blacksheep designs new Jamie Oliver restaurant


Design agency Blacksheep has joined forces with Jamie Oliver to design his new restaurant Jamie's Italian in Stratford City's Westfield, situated next to Stratford station and en route to the Olympic Park.

Blacksheep has worked with the renowned chef before on several of his other projects, including the Union Jacks restaurants. The Stratford City branch of his Italian chain opened last October, and features a mix of American-diner influences along with plenty of industrial chic, seen in the distressed oak timber flooring and rough concrete render used.

The restaurant was designed with the Olympic games in mind. 'People visiting the Olympics will be naturally drawn to Westfields, Stratford City the key then is designing a space which offers them an unforgettable London dining experience that fits within this environment' says Blacksheep senior designer, Jordan Littler. 'The restaurant is an engaging environment its theatrical yet enjoyable, relaxing and above all serves wonderful, easy Italian food.’
