The Old Fire Station in Hammersmith will be 100 years old, and new occupiers wagamama are hosting celebrations.
The old fire station building is grade II listed for its special architectural and historic interest. “We wanted to work with the building to enhance its original features and history” said wagamama property development manager Emily Hyder-Smith, “The floor, ceiling, front doors, walls, windows, original water tower by the rear terrace and even the mechanical maintenance pit were preserved and protected as part of the restaurant design. Of course, we’ve added our iconic wagamama style to the interior but we’ve also ensured it all works in harmony by making the historic features the heroes of the design. the outcome is a really unique and interesting restaurant and bar that everyone can enjoy!”
“We’re privileged to have our restaurant in the old fire station which is such an important part of both the borough’s and the london fire brigade’s history,” said Marios Athanasiou, general manager of wagamama hammersmith. “we hope to see hundreds of local families and residents popping in over the course of the centenary week (from April 26) for some special treats, competitions and activities, as well as all of the tasty dishes and cocktails we have on offer at wagamama throughout the year!”
