This heritage-listed ex-tyre factory was ingeniously reinvented to create an ambient bistro feel. The false ceilings have been ripped out, revealing a room that feels rustic with its exposed bricks, wooden beams, and soaring ceilings.
Designed by Humphrey & Edwards, the restaurant is divided into two spaces by carefully restored oversized hardwood doors. The bar area features detailed architectural steelwork and a 25m long vertical section of hardwood timber as its surface. In the dining space, hand crafted u-shaped banquets were made to house the cushioned seats with echoes of similar artisan timberwork on display throughout the room.
Working within a heritage building, and to a constricted budget, required our team to be flexible and diligent in our cost planning for. At the same time, we were committed to creating a unique restaurant experience for Keystone Group, from the bar through to private dining areas and the deli café.
