The Liverpool Football Club Boot Room Sports Cafe is a 230 seated themed restaurant at Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet Centre, which has been created with LFC fans in mind. The restaurant, which has a strong brand identity with official club memorabilia on display, is inspired by the coaches’ meeting room from the illustrious Shankly era at Anfield.
Steon Lighting were asked to provide a comprehensive lighting scheme for LFC Boot Room. This included all bar areas, the restaurant, the children’s play areas, back of house areas such as the commercial kitchens and outdoor floodlighting for the gardens and football pitch.
As this restaurant is a branded space the lighting scheme needed to be coherent with the LFC brand identity. In addition, the appointed architects, AFL Architects, had a clear vision of how the lighting scheme would segment areas in their floor plan.
Steon Lighting supplied a variety of luminaires including low energy recessed compact fluorescents, high efficiency linear T5 fluorescents, emergency signs and outdoor floodlights for the large outdoor garden area and football pitch. Sixteen Zeus contemporary metallic, low energy pendants complemented the modern industrial, exposed ceilings and high-shine wall finishes whilst the Chiera energy efficient pendants provided elegant feature lighting above the bar, heightening the whole aesthetic impact of the restaurant.
The lighting has enhanced the informal, relaxing and family friendly atmosphere at the core of the AFL Architect’s clever design concept; the restaurant has been subtly segmented into identifiable zones.
