We share our insights on what makes a bar or hotel popular, what furnishings are in trend and more importantly how clever design maximises space, increases service offering and more importantly how to drive a return on investment.

As we draw a close to 2015, our twentieth anniversary here at Newman Gauge has been somewhat of an exciting challenge.


In the last 12 months we’ve had a number of our leisure design projects shortlisted for awards, including our restaurant design for Warner’s Hotels’ Alvaston Hall and retail projects for Center Parcs coming in as highly commended finalists at The Retail Week Interior Awards.


Our year at a glance certainly includes some interesting projects from Marston’s, M&B, Warner Hotels, Center Parcs, Butlins, and a number of unique independents entering the leisure market.


It’s been a great year, and we’re certainly looking forward to 2016 (with a newly refurbed office for us for once!)
