the story . . .

A prison conjures images of concrete walls with barred windows. In contrast, the 1920's evokes the decadence of Art Deco style. Smuggling suggests secrecy, reminiscent of American speakeasies also prevalent in 1920's prohibition.

Combining these elements results in an elegant, refined restaurant sitting within the existing concrete space creating unexpected contrasts in texture and colour.

From a hidden entrance in a featureless facade the diner is transported to a world of clandestine luxury.

Ground Floor - 48 cover restaurant, reception, cloakroom, accessible toilet, lift to first floor.

First Floor - 48 seat lower bar, 20 seat upper bar, restrooms, 40sqm kitchen, staff area.
