Fish Shop


A.J Wells produced a vitreous enamelled shop counter, external fascia and fittings for an up-market fish and chip shop in West London. Enamel was specified for its durability and hygienic qualities.

The interior was inspired by forms and colours of traditional fishmongers and mobile seafood stalls. The terrazzo floors, blue striped awnings, timber panelling and enamel surfaces reflected this.

“A happy mixture of the familiar and the fresh, the English fish and chip shop brought up to date” Frame MagazineThe lights on the ceiling are arranged to form a map of Britain, illustrating its relationship with the sea.

The design was published in Vogue, Wallpaper, RIBA interiors & FX magazines. It also featured on the front cover of the Independent “Information” magazine.
