St Kilda

After we were engaged to design their own house, the owners of an iconic St Kilda beachfront bar / restaurant approached us to refresh their existing fitout and open up a new al fresco drinking and dining area.

Inspired by the coastal location and the heritage flavour of the existing building, we designed a fresh new palette of white, timber and rattan, with playful patterns and perforated textures inspired by tropical bungalows of the 1920s. A new pavilion structure and movable planter screens were introduced into the existing space to create a sense of intimacy and distinctive zones, all with an abundance of cascading and climbing indoor plants.
