FUKUKO - The Lucky Child - is a Japanese inspired Shōchū and snack bar located in Britomart's historic Union Fish Building. Doors and windows open to the street, and the space within is both raw and polished - oiled timbers with waxed concrete and plaster. Under-lit glass vessels of infused Shōchu are lined along the walls, carried in industrial steel mesh trays. The furnishings are loose and bespoke, clusters of reversed pelt stools and backlit resin tables in fine steel frames.

Project details: The internal floor area is approximately 50m2 and opening was mid 2013. Fearon Hay’s project team was led by Piers Kay with Gordon Gallagher & Rufus Knight. Tim Hay and Jeff Fearon are the design architects. Photography is by Patrick Reynolds.
