Nooa, meaning ‘perfectly natural’, was presented to us by the Client, who asked us to create a new restaurant concept with inspiration deriving from South African roots. Born in the heart of Rooibos Land, the idea was to focus on the natural beauty that Southern Africa has to offer. Simplistic in its nature, we elevated the aesthetic through mixed media flooring solutions, where alluring surfaces combine mixtures of raked and polished marble which contrast with the wood finishes to define spatial zones within. Radiating natural beauty and minimalistic detailing, travelling through the restaurant becomes a desirable quest for guests as there is something to be admired in every corner. Artisanal detailing enhances the tiled columns, bringing together rustic forms with something a little more elegant. Gold accents transpire throughout the space with one area featuring manipulated red brick shifts together with olive paneled wall cladding and dark wood floorings providing an interesting combination of how the different media’s can be utilised. A innovative restaurant offering where guests can indulge in a unique South African cuisine.
