Arkhé is a bar and dining room that responds to the ritual of cooking over fire through the ephemeral nature in time and decay with an acknowledgement of the beauty in everyday life.
Inspiration is taken from the colours and textures of nature, where frayed fabric, worn ceramics, knots in wood, and imperfections are all celebrated.
