Our top 10 projects of all time

Since GS Contracts was founded in 1992, we have worked on a multitude of fantastic projects. From commercial, hospitality, leisure to residential, we’ve had the opportunity to work with a range of clients and industries.

In honour of our achievements, we’ve decided to spotlight our all-time top 10 favourite projects! It was a tough call, but we’re thrilled to share these standout projects with you all.

In no particular order, check out our 10 favourites:

ROVI Ottolenghi

Located in London, Wells Street, ROVI was a spectacular project our team loved working on.

This 18-week fit-out project combined project management, technical design development, manufacturing and deliverance, providing our clients with a consistent, solution focused process.

ROVI combines its seasonal organic palate with the surroundings of natural materials providing a dining experience which relaxes our fast paced lives, excites our senses and indulges our social conversation.

We absolutely loved working on this restaurant fit-out for Scarpetta in Canary Wharf.

Scarpetta is an all day Italian restaurant serving fresh pasta, Italian cocktails and a great selection of Italian wines.

With stylish interiors, a lively ambience, and great music all day, it’s the perfect spot for everyone!


Sugar Quay

Next up: Sugar Quay – An exciting venture away from our typical hospitality projects.

In June 2021, we had the opportunity to work on a stunning residential refurbishment project in London, which we successfully delivered to the client’s satisfaction.

Located in the Sugar Quay apartments, the property is situated along the River Thames with beautiful city scape views.

We took complete ownership of the management on-site whilst Gaysha carried out all project and finance management.

Working with the talented team at Casa Alta Design, we were able to bring a glimpse of affluent city life into the apartment.

Colicci's Chiswick House Cafe

We were lucky enough to get the chance to complete this café refurbishment with one of our valued clients Colicci, an artisan family business of cakes, kiosks, and restaurants across the city of London.

With neutral tones, classic features and not forgetting the beautiful scenery- Ourselves and the team at Article Design helped transform the existing architectural designed space into a new-found capacity for their speciality coffee, homemade cakes, and delicious lunch items.

Como Garden

Here at GS Contracts, we love a challenge and when we were asked to carry out a complete refit of a restaurant in High Street Kensington, London, in just six weeks we jumped at the chance!

Both the menu and the décor at Como Garden are inspired by the gardens of Lake Como. Think of a cool, sophisticated colour scheme, luscious planting throughout and the odd Renaissance-style statue.

Although strict time scales can be a challenge- this project has got to be up there with one of our favourites!

Solus Ceramics

Leading tile supplier, Solus Ceramics, contacted our team to help create an informal space offering architects and designers somewhere to look for tile inspiration and develop design schemes.

Our friends at BusbyWebb carried out the design for the two-floor showroom and the end result is simply stunning.

Solus Ceramics was so impressed with the final result we have been back to carry out a number of further projects at the showroom.

One of our favourites was a bespoke window display, designed by @‌aleksa_studios_london and fabricated by GS Contracts.

Cafe Murano

Café Murano is described by founder and celebrity chef, Angela Hartnett, as the ‘brassier little sister’ of Murano, her Michelin-starred restaurant.

Café Murano has branches in St James and Covent Garden, and at the end of last year, opened a third venue in Bermondsey, which GS Contracts was proud to bring to fruition.

GS Contracts is immensely proud to have taken this project from concept to the immaculate finished space.

The end result was both the perfect working environment for a fast and effective flow of service and a relaxing and tranquil dining area in the bustling city.

The Golf Groove

Our team thoroughly enjoyed working on this fit-out for The Golf Groove in Wimbledon.

This virtual golfing experience encompasses 12 virtual Golf Bays, an extensive bar & kitchen and a terrace area.

Our team carried out all joinery works for this 20-week fit-out project by utilising our in-house manufacturing facility and joinery expertise.

This fit-out project was a fantastic experience for us to work on something a bit different!


Working with the famous designer Morag Myerscough, our team were fortunate to work on this fantastic project.

Our team manufactured this spectacular steel structure kiosk located at 1 Finsbury Avenue Square.

Collaborating with numerous designers, Myerscough created this exquisite intervention to infuse a touch of nature and vitality into an otherwise grey corporate environment.


Bombay Bustle

Last on our list is Bombay Bustle, from start to completion this project was truly a pleasure to work on.

Bombay Bustle is an upmarket Indian restaurant located in the heart of Mayfair.

GS Contracts were hired as the project managers and fit-out contractors working from a design concept from the talented team at Fabled.

We absolutely love how the end result turned out.
