The restaurant sought to provide a space which explored the notion of opposites and contrast through its interior design scheme. A Feng Shui consultant was engaged to collaborate with the design team throughout the process.
The dark interior design palette created an ambience of subdued elegance and a sense of the diversity of culture. Materials of timber, metal, stone and fabric have been used throughout this space. The lighting to this area has been carefully positioned and aimed to highlight the many architecture elements that make up the interior of the space. This technique combined with changing scene settings throughout the day and night has given the restaurant a theatrical feel that is warm and inviting.
The light interior design palette created an ambience more suited to the daytime diner. It is sophisticated yet has a casual feel and the finishes of light coloured timber and stone have been used to create a light and open plan space. The architectural focus of the space is the teppanyaki island kitchen. The lighting to this area has been designed to highlight the white marble and cooking area of the open kitchen as well as focusing on other architectural elements throughout with area including the timber screens. A pendant has been used in a grid arrangement towards the rear of the restaurant as a way of enticing patrons through to this area.
