Zero Waste Dining: Silo, Brighton

Baines & Fricker has designed the interiors for a new restaurant in Brighton that claims to be the UK’s first zero-waste restaurant. Silo‘s “pre-industrial” food system includes brewing vinegar and beer, growing mushrooms, curing meat, rolling oats and milling flour in-house. Food scraps are all composted and the restaurant’s suppliers – from farmers to coffee roasters – all follow the same stringent zero-waste policy.

Baines & Frickers’ interior design for the restaurant follows the same philosophy of making use of the everyday and overlooked. Old school furniture and used office flooring is turned into tables and seating, and sterling board is made into simple, modular stools.
