Cosy Cocktail Bar Interiors – Commercial Design Portfolio

What do you do with an oddly shaped completely enclosed space sandwiched between a large restaurant and a live music venue? “How about a cocktail bar?” the client said, “something contemporary with an Asian twist to suit the menu we have in mind?”

In response we took a simple approach to the interior finishes – an open ceiling void with exposed services and plain rendered walls – and focused attention on the serpentine profiled bar stretching the full width of the space, its shape and texture contrasting beautifully with the grey, angular walls. A vibrant red Chinese calligraphy mural around the central seating area added a warm,glowing focal point to the entire space. The majority of lighting was integrated within the bar and its backdrop, behind fixed seats and projected onto walls to highlight artwork creating a sophisticated but mellow atmosphere.
