An Urban Bistro & Wine Bar Interiors – Commercial Design
Dining trends change just as fashion does and hotels must keep their food and beverage outlets fresh and relevant. In this particular 5 star hotel an outdated fine dining restaurant was replaced with a casual dining and bar concept influenced by a modern Australian fusion menu and wine cellar. A major requirement of the brief was to include a significant feature bar area and an environment in which to enjoy wine focused events. The dining area needed to be casual, contemporary and subtly subdivided to allow for small groups but flexible enough to cater to larger functions. Finishes were kept simple with an emphasis on the natural materials of wood – in the bar and table tops – and stone in the flooring. The plain walls and ceiling provided a perfect backdrop for the oversized murals painted in warm and earthy colours and textures. The lighting is thoughtfully integrated throughout creating a flattering palette of light and shade; a convivial backdrop for relaxed business or pleasure.
