The Jane restaurant in Antwerp and Dandelyan bar in London took top prizes at the 2015 Restaurant & Bar Design Awards, now in its seventh year.

Designer and architect Matteo Thun and chef Jason Atherton are just two of the names on the 23-strong panel of judges.

The Jane in Antwerp, Belgium is an ex-military hospital chapel that was transformed by local design practice Piet Boon into a modern Gothic space. It features a statement spiked chandelier design and all new stained glass windows by Studio Job.

The art deco inspired Dandelyan bar, housed in the recently refurbished Mondrian London hotel, was conceived by Tom Dixon’s Design Research Studio. Originally designed by American architect Warren Platner in the 1970s, the hotel looms over the Thames and is said to be a contemporary reflection on the golden age of transatlantic travel.

There are 36 other category winners at this year’s awards. See the full list here.
