The Beehive - Thorner

When award-winning chef Matt Healy chose The Beehive in Thorner as his third planned eatery in Leeds, he called upon Nanu Soda to help make his vision a reality. The brief was to create a distinctive gastropub look and feel within this beautiful old village inn, promoting a warm, welcoming yet contemporary environment to compliment his unique dining experience, serving pub classics with a signature modern twist. Always wanting to make an entrance, a chevron timber floor acts as a travellator pulling you in down a decorated corridor adorned by famed local artist Nicolas Dixon, towards more muted floor and wall finishes encourage a calm and relaxed atmosphere when dining, still with carefully poised injections of colour providing focus and interest, including Matt’s own established teal brand colour. Careful consideration has been given to materials and textures, with selected hand finishes in the bar area promoting individuality and effect..

The Directors Suite - Headingley Stadium

Interior design specialists Nanu Soda have just completed their largest project to date at the Emerald Headingley Stadium in Leeds, devising a total transformation of the main function room and private dining areas to create cutting edge leisure and dining facilities. The project is part of ambitious plans to transform the stadium into one of the finest rugby and cricket venues in the world. 

Headingley Stadium is the home of Yorkshire County Cricket Club, Leeds Rhinos Rugby League and Yorkshire Carnegie Rugby Union Clubs. It houses two separate grounds, Headingley Cricket Ground and Headingley Rugby Stadium, served by a dual facing hospitality stand providing facilities for both.  

Commenting for the Emerald Headingly Stadium, Head of Operations Sue Ward outlined the importance of the project. “This refurbishment was a vital part of our work to totally transform the stadium,” she stated. “The scheme designed by Nanu Soda demonstrated their in-depth understanding not just of our aspirations but also of how the facility would work best going forward, creating a world class, exciting and welcoming space with the flexibility to match our varied hospitality requirements.”

You can also take a virtual tour of the function room here.
