  • area / size 5,382 sqft
  • Year 2019
  • Location Cairns, Australia,
  • Type Restaurant,
  • A playful and colourful Asian inspired restaurant and bar, for the new Riley Hotel located in Cairns, Queensland. We wanted to create a clean and beautiful design bolstered by strong interior detail, complimenting the high-quality food offering and withstanding the standard of a five-star resort.

    The brief was to create a contemporary and refreshing environment for the guests of the Riley Hotel. The interior finishes and aesthetic needed to reflect the subtropical context of the Riley Hotel, but also inject elements of contemporary asian aesthetic referencing Japanese forms, materials and architecture.

    The large interior environment included outdoor from deck dining, large open plan interior environment, a cocktail lounge, two private dining spaces, a meat and wine display and a gallery kitchen.
