A Very Inc. // 2021

Back after the very first covid lockdown we were asked to take a look at a potential development site with a client we had worked with previously. The derelict MOT garage was in a prime location in the centre of Manchester, unloved for years and in need of some creative ideas to temporarily transform it into a takeaway pizza restaurant.

Fast forward two years and not only is Ramona a brilliant indoor outdoor space with a fully functioning cellar, bar and pizza kitchen it is also adjacent to its internal sister restaurant Firehouse. Firehouse features a huge open plan kitchen and 10 meter long bar. Both Ramona and Firehouse use second hand furniture and finishes to sympathetically blend into the existing site. The best news of all? It looks like they both might become a permanent feature on the Manchester restaurant scene.
