/design intent “Create a new design concept to utilise the front section of a much loved city favourite ”
Gordon Street Garage is a well established and frequented venue in the Perth CBD. Our brief was to explore a new design concept for the long-table section in the front wing, which was becoming under-utilised. We extended on the existing approach by playing with the heritage garage theme to make the space more usable and entice an all-day crowd.
Dark grey window treatments filter the light, whilst nostalgic dado railing and new lighting were brought in to work with hand crafted leather banquettes and booth seats in green and tan leathers. Banquettes are reminiscent of the Holden HR bench seats and are accompanied by the generous Muuto tub chairs. Playing with the warmth of the leather are beautiful spotted gum timber tables and jarrah dado railings, which also compliment the original Oregon ceiling, now exposed.
The transformed space becomes a meeting pod, perfect for coffee and entices patrons to stay for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
