Playful, colourful and incorporating a range of textures, Work.Shop.Dine created
an easy-to-clean and functional restaurant that doesn’t compromise on style
his Claremont Quarter restaurant took
on a fun and lively twist when the design
team of Work.Shop.Dine was asked to
create a casual family dining experience.
Drawing inspiration from the movie Kung Fu
Panda and elements of contemporary Asian design,
the team pulled together a fun, stylised restaurant.
Space was highly considered to ensure
maximum seating numbers, while maximising the
use and functionality of the kitchen and bar areas.
Work.Shop.Dine was given an open brief by the
client for the overall concept. A roast duck display,
often seen in Chinese restaurants in Northbridge,
was added for food theatre.
The black granite top, supplied by Beyond
Stone, and the counter splashback tiles in
Bisazza created inspiration for the black-and-
white floor tile layout supplied by European
Ceramics. The geometric pattern adds form
and shape to the concept.
Wall panels were made using handmade
timber strips, which Work.Shop.Dine had
specified to be coated in three levels of stain
consisting of two types of Chinese reds and
finished in a satin clear coat, to create an antique
chinese lacquer effect.
The fabric from Materialised used on the
banquet seating back matched the restaurant’s
selected plants, while the crocodile-skin-
patterned vinyl on the base was used to embrace
the overall jungle and animal theme.
The restaurant was built by IBEX Interiors,
signage and feature pendants were custom-
designed by Work.Shop.Dine and built by WASP.
Work.Shop.Dine briefed Swoon Design for the
logo and graphics.
