Endo at the Rotunda is London’s newest high-end sushi restaurant, helmed by third generation sushi master Endo Kazutoshi, and based in the Rotunda above what was BBC Television Centre. The restaurant’s owners needed a website to herald the opening (in time for a very positive review from Giles Coren in The Times), in keeping with the aesthetic of the restaurant – designed by renowned Japanese architect Kengo Kuma. Situated on the eighth floor of the building, the owners were also looking for ways to innovate with technology to improve access.
Working alongside the branding and design partners (Pentagram), we produced a highly cut back and clean WordPressCMS website, using Gutenberg for flexible layouts and AWS for the infrastructure.
Integration with SevenRooms API and booking widget allowed us to integrate online bookings into the website, with an accompanying React Native hybrid iOS and Android mobile app to view and manage your bookings, and pre-warn the restaurant of your arrival on site.
