Cabana Brixton, Bon Marche Centre

Chaotic Brixton Brazilian fit out embodies the country's unique visual aesthetic with upcycled interiors...

Shake your Samba. Cabana is the Brasilian barbecue restaurant with outposts around London and beyond; Cabana Brixton is their gift to the borough of Lambeth, put together by London-based architecture and design practice Michaelis Boyd Associates, located within the locally listed Bon Marche Centre.

Roping in a number of artists, and local upcycling charity Remakery, Michaelis Boyd (co-founded by Alex Michaelis and Tim Boyd in 1995) have pushed the brand to its limits in a space that expresses the inimitable visual chaos of Brazil. With experience fitting out spaces for the likes of Soho House Group and Michelin-starred Tom Aikens, the studio have pulled out all the stops, with a euphoric aesthetic that embraces craft and artistry.

Repurposed crates; locally-reclaimed wood; pallet boards; recycled fabrics; mismatched furnishings — the overwhelming eclecticism flows around a central cabana hut, that serves to physically divide sections with distinct looks. There’s also a sit-at ‘caipirinha and cocktail bar’, a first for Cabana, that has its own individual identity; another piece for a brilliant puzzle that revels in disorder.
