"IT'S LOUD, PROUD, AMD FULL OF POSITIVE ENERGY" THE HOME OF THE COCKTAIL MASTERCLASS & VODKA FLAVOURED SHOT STICKS; REVOLUTION, HAS FOUND A NEW HOME IN HISTORIC EXETER. THE THREE BARS, AND RESTAURANT SPACES UNFOLD ACROSS A MEANDERING THREE FLOORS AS GUESTS ARE LEAD ON A JOURNEY OF EXPLORATION WITH EACH SPACE OFFERING A UNIQUE YET HARMONIOUS EXPERIENCE. WHETHER ITS A DRAG BRUNCH, COCKTAIL MASTERCLASS OR A NIGHT ON THE DANCE FLOOR THERE IS NO BETTER PLACE IN EXETER. After a 4 year pause in new site openings for Revolution, we were delighted to collaborate with the client to once again to bring the vibrant brand to the university city of Exeter. The site was a amalgamation of 3 historic and Grade II listed buildings on Queen Street that presented the design & construction teams with plenty of challenges along the way to create an experience that represents the brands young & rebellious attitude whilst being sensitive to the constraints of the historic fabric. Combining the features and character of each individual building with a colour palette of amber, copper and red, accompanied by exposed original brickwork creates a inviting warmth and elegance, juxtaposed by contemporary artwork, graffiti, murals and LED signage features that create a memorable experience for guests. We took a "Kinsugi" approach to show the layers and story of the building through time, repairing rather than replacing where appropriate. We also endeavoured to re-use and enhance as much as possible from the inherited site, such as repurposing bar countertops and timber wall cladding, as well as re-purposing tables and light fittings held in storage from the clients previous sites.
