Bollywood Spice the highly successful Indian and Nepalese restaurant and take away based in Warmley, Bristol is on the move to bigger premises.  Situated in Longwell Green The Barrs Court Inn once part of the the Barr’s Court Estate is a magnificent stone built barn with almost cathedral like proportions.  The Estate, once owned by the Newton family has now disappeared under the ring road, new housing estates and the Aspects Leisure Centre. The barn is I believe the only surviving reminder and was converted to a pub in the eighties.

The pub, once renowned for it restaurant and guaranteed to be choc a bloc on a Saturday night, has become rather tired but now destined for a new lease of life as a multicultural restaurant and takeaway.  Getting into conversation with the Bollywood’s owners whilst enjoying some of their brilliant cuisine;  it turned out that they were looking for some way to see how the grade II listed building could be adapted, and how much change they could effect.  We agreed that I would  create a virtual model of the building and provide a range of 3D visuals showing the possible options. The visuals could then be put before the authorities and builders to assess what could be acceptable to planning and within the available budgets.

Restaurant owner Naz Abdul was delighted with the results, as he explained, “it was difficult for me to visualise how we could turn the barn, a huge open space, into a cosy restaurant.  Applause were able to provide accurate visuals from any angle within the building, change the lighting, fabrics and fittings till we could see just the effect we were looking for.  We were then able to supply planners and builders with a clear understandable picture of how we wanted the interior to look and avoid expensive mistakes.

We are also able to add value by using the graphics in our planned online and print marketing.  Applause are also currently working with us to create new branding, website and marketing materials.  This is a really exciting project and we are looking forward to a grand opening shortly.
