Restaurant design: Sandton’s new GRK Greek restaurant offers a sleek, contemporary space


Playing on classic street food, GRK by Ethos offers a reimagined twist on gyro’s – a hand-held pita filled with a variety of meats, dips and vegetables. What sets GRK apart from the traditional variant is that the meats are grilled on pans, unlike the original rotisserie method. The restaurant is a fast-casual extension of the Ethos brand.

The sleek and contemporary setting corresponds to new cooking methods. Fresh, clean and modern, the interiors are designed by Giorgio Tatsakis of Atelier Giorgio. Ebony wood, neutral palettes and simple minimalism paired with Wolkberg herringbone flooring make it the perfect venue for dinner parties or takeout.

In a nod to Greek art, Giorgio created a focal point with the organic bar counter and a symmetrical wall panel that sits behind the arched cubicles. Inspired by and referencing Greek art forms, the intention of the space was to move away from the traditional “blue and white” aesthetic that one usually sees and associates with a Greek restaurant, and the modernize, just like the food,” comments Giorgio.
