WAVE RESTAURANT HOSPITALITY DESIGN


WAVE RESTAURANT

/Revit. Photoshop. Hand Rendering/

The design and decoration proposal for Wave Restaurant is primarily inspired by sea life. The colours found in it, its gracious shapes and curved lines.

Concept Keywords Sea. Corals. Anemones. Beach. Sand. Sun.

Experience and general description of Wave Restaurant design As soon as the guests walk in, they are to be greeted by the concierge in the entrance area. To meet different needs, guests will have different dining options at Wave Restaurant to choose from: An elevated Bar Area, which is an important visual statement of the restaurant. The hero of this space is the backlit semi-precious onyx slabs in a range of coral tones, joint by thin golden bars, creating a distinctively elegant feature. The whole piece makes a wow factor as the good use of lighting coming through the stone panels will cause a visual impact, emphasizing the pattern of the stone. There is also be a lower seating Bar Area. The Bao armchair, an opulent and chic piece with an artistic back is the stylish icon in the lower seating area. The Wine Bar Dining Area, located adjacent to the Bar Area. The main feature of this area is an imposing oversized 9+ meters wide fireplace, floor to ceiling, nicely dressed in dark-brown honed travertine. In the center of the Bistro Dining Area, round banquet seating resembling anemones-like shape will play the most dominant seating type.

Teachers need to embrace the new learning environment and methods. More up-to-date technology and more flexible study delivery may help their workloads. Physical changes to the environment where teachers work, different and comfortable study areas other than just the classroom will give more opportunity for teachers to stay motivated promoting their commitment to teaching, improving the learning atmosphere.

MUSGO

/Hand Sketches.Revit.Photoshop/ Design proposal and business name selection for a high concept florist pop-up store that specialises in unique floral arragements of the finest quality flowers sourced from local growers. Design Brief Develop a design concept for the pop-up shop which will be located in Melbourne Central Shopping Centre. Site An open plan area of approximately 20sqm on the ground floor concourse of Melbourne Central Shopping Centre. As rental of this high profile site is expensive, the pop-up shop has a short term lease of this space for 1 month. The store needs to be a ‘stand alone’ kiosk. Flow of foot traffic must be consider between it and the surrounding tenancies. Elements to consider - Use of edgy, unconventional and sustainable materials such as ply, recycled timber and concrete - Customized displays - Design solutions to secure the store after hours

PLANNING & DESIGN CONCEPT


CONCEPT STATEMENT A dramatic concept has been developed for Musgo, a florist Pop-Up Shop which will be on the ground floor of Melbourne Central Shopping Centre. The main structure of the shop will resemble a gigantic mossy crate as if it was a portion of an abandoned land of giants that just emerged in the middle of the shopping centre. The roof will feature the name MUSGO in oversized letters resting on a garden that seems to have grown on the top of the crate through the years. This theatrical concept will make a statement attracting customers passing by and making them curious to know what is inside. The entrance of the shop will be a broken side of the crate - like a mouse hole. In the interior, an old tree will branch out through the ceiling. From the tree, instead of fruits, will hang “abandoned� semi-broken crates containing flower arrangements (the product) so clients can pick them out. A swing with a mannequin whose head will be a massive floral arrangement will be the artsy touch in the shop. Old barrels will also be used as displays.

PLAN VIEW - INSIDE (LEFT)/OUTSIDE (RIGHT)

All the materials to be used for its construction are to be recycled or from a sustainable source.
