Nandos Smith St, Fitzroy
Type: Restaurant interior design
Architects: Manish, Tse Ying, Jeet
The challenge: Existing restaurant layout has a dark interior with too many partitions.
Our solution: To achieve a continuous space, we have proposed an open seating layout. All vertical physical barriers were omitted; customer seatings are grouped by means of booths or banquet seats. The use of different floor finishes also helped separate different areas up. In overall, finishes were mainly kept natural, with some bright colours to liven up the space. Lighting layout and fitting selection are key to providing the right atmosphere as well as give emphasize to parts of the restaurant.
