Brick is undoubtedly the hero of this restaurant, with brickwork repeated on the walls, bar and floors to create a dynamic and inviting atmosphere.The restaurant is comprised of over 50,000 hand cut bricks that were laid in 8 different ways- stack bond, brick bond, bolstered, facia tiled, fluted, end cut, side cut and vaulted, which creates a brick-on-brick narrative that unfolds as you make your way through the restaurant. Bowral Bricks Bowral 50 in Simmental Silver
were used to create a calming grey palette, offset by blackened steel used for the windows, façade and bar surrounds.
