Most Innovative Design

Oak & Vine is an innovative new concept to traditional inner city bar / restaurant design.  The tenancy has been transformed from a pokey bar into a vibrant 'place to be'. Innovative use of timber and vibrant colours and design elements were used to create a sensational socialising experience.
Existing street glazing within the space incorporated large sliding panels which were the inspiration to create a 'wintergarden' deck dining experience. Extensive use of timber, greenery and variable windows to this space combine to provide a casual, flexible patron area.  This space also provides the transition between the street pedestrians and the internal bar. 
Internally the fit-out provided a signature bar incorporating stone, timber, and metal emphasised with speciality lighting. Operable bi-fold doors allow the merge of dining and guest waiting area, thus creating separate spaces with visual connections.
