Wine Bar

Internal fitout, Surry Hills, NSW

Inspired by the raw, honest approach of early 20th Century Swedish master Sigurd Lewerentz and the memory of a smokey boudoir which I had heard about but could never find, we began peeling back the layers of the previous, much-loved cafe whilst carefully inserting a 'constructed', almost hand-made interior.

The palette of materials is a little expected, a little eclectic; formply, bronze, cow hide, pressed tin, electrical and plumbing components and kangaroo skin velum and it flirts with the line between design and art, earnestness and play, sobriety and naughtiness.
