Enhance Your Hospitality Space with a Unique Fit-Out
We often see food as a gateway to experiencing different countries and cultures from the comfort of our hometowns, but the experience must extend beyond the meal by making your fit-out add value to the customer’s experience. The design of your hospitality space should assist your brand and your customers to create a memorable experience. That being said, we think it’s time to give your space a tasteful fit-out that’s just as tasty as your cuisine. We’re diving into how Australia’s best and brightest venues are forging valuable customer experiences through their fit-out.
- The Breezy Bay Comeback
Unless you haven’t been living under a rock, you would have noticed the rise in popularity of Byron Bay. with the town being famous for its beachy getaway vibes, its popularity has also branched into influencing the design of local hospitality venues. Similar to Byron Bay’s hip and indie vibe, kombucha has also taken the country by storm. With these two entities sharing similar associations it’s clear that they’re a match made in heaven and in saying that, we can look toward Dirty Bucha. Located in Stone & Wood’s old Byron Bay brewery, Dirty Bucha is serving up your favourite kombucha flavours… but here’s the twist, it’s boozy! The space shouts cool and hip with its wall of boozy kombucha taps, bespoke joinery work, and indoor plants – making it almost feel like you’re at your mate’s shed trying some homebrew! Having a fit-out that encompasses the associations of the drink and the venue’s location can create a wholesome and down-to-earth experience.
- Keep Your Culture Loud + Proud While Adapting for the Future
Although many restaurants mirror their fit-out’s design to match their cuisine, you shouldn’t limit yourself to this, and try to change it up. Simple things like fusing modern design with traditional and cultural elements can help ensure your space’s longevity. If you’re asking yourself how you can do this, check out some of Unita’s projects. Built by Unita and located in WA, Topi is switching up your typical Indian restaurant with a modern spin on traditional design. Featuring sweeping archways and built-in shelving alongside a sandy colour palette, the space reimagines Indian restaurants while also embracing traditional culture through decor and furniture choices.
Another restaurant doing it differently is Komeyui in Melbourne, VIC. Fusing contemporary Western design with traditional Japanese design, Komeyui’s space sets a new standard for fine dining. Keeping in line with authentic minimalist design, the space features clean lines with smooth textures, complemented with light + dark slate wooden finishes that create a private and calming quality to the space.
- Make the Old New?
With more developments happening around us, carefully selecting a site that is heritage listed or culturally significant to your city could be a standout feature of your business. This year, Unita delivered Coffee Anthology’s brand new space in Brisbane, QLD. As a part of JLL’s latest development, Midtown Centre, the coffee shop is set inside the development’s entrance. Although the space is a new build, the building’s heritage facade has been maintained to keep the city’s history alive. Coffee Anthology embraces’ the building’s internally exposed brick and contrasts it with its LED archways that mirror the stunning original arched windows. Going the extra mile, the shop also features industrial-style shelving that gives nods toward Brisbane’s working-class history.
