NOTES: The site of the restaurant sloped steeply and this dictated its shape. At the behest of the Office of Works the building had to be kept low. In order to provide a necessary sense of space to the restaurant interior whilst complying with the dictates of the Office of Works, the roof was given a conic shape which greatly enlarged the volume of the room without affecting the external appearance.
