About Spacely

Over 15 years successfully serving the restaurant industry

Spacely Ltd. was set up in May 2003 by Matthew Sewell as an independent consultancy dealing with restaurant design and ergonomics. Since then Spacely has worked on over 250 projects with several national restaurant groups as well as numerous individual restaurateurs on the design and layout of restaurants, and how to keep them relevant in an ever changing world. Spacely’s particular concern is to look at the whole of a project, and ensure that all aspects are integrated towards the customer’s needs and goals, rather than the piecemeal approach so often found.

Matthew Sewell has been involved in the catering industry for over 42 years, starting as a generalist but gradually specialising in design and the setting up of new projects. Starting as a graduate trainee with a vending company, he has spent time in several sectors, including seven years with Bob Payton of Chicago Pizza Pie Factory fame, and two years running his own French restaurant. Before founding Spacely Ltd. Matthew spent fourteen years at PizzaExpress plc, becoming design director and working on designs for restaurants all over the world.

Awards & Fellowship

Fellow of the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce since 2001, Past Fellow of the Faculty of Building 2003-2008.
