The interior design of a contemporary Persian restaurant at the newly developed Clark Quay in Singapore.
The design is a modern interpretation of an authentic Persian restaurant, with an open kitchen and kebab display. Traditional architectural elements are the inspiration for the interior architecture underpinned with natural tones and clean lines.
Three distinctive areas are punctuated by Islamic-style archways. To the right is the open kitchen, and to the left is an intimate bar area. Further into the space is the main dining with Middle Eastern artefacts displayed in recessed niches.
The conceptual interior design for the refurbishment of a 25-year-old upmarket steakhouse in the heart of Cape Town.
The brief required working within a warehouse-style space constructed with i-beams and an industrial exposed soffit. The existing mechanical fittings and wine storage gantries were preserved.
The design inspiration is the quintessential Art Deco New York-style bistro. The focus of the space is the 5-meter long bar clad in copper sheeting, matt-bronze rails, and with a white quartz countertop.
Finishes include herringbone solid oak flooring with white mosaic tile trims, copper, bronze, and leather in muted colours, creating a minimal yet refined space.
