Just like the restaurants ethos, Fire and heat are the touchstones of the design. The standards were extremely high designing this Michelin-star and ranked among the Worlds 50 Best Restaurants. Located in a turn of century colonial barracks and double-height raftered ceilings. Materials and form were selected to be Primal and elemental in their nature, and prized for their transformative, shape-shifting qualities. Metals shift in colour, timbers deepen in tone.A In the main dining room, Indonesian suar is the counter table framing the open kitchen. Flooring is teak planks are reclaimed from a bridge in Indonesia. The square pillars are hand beaten copper panels. A forest of studio lamps hangs from the double-height ceiling. A walk in wine cellar which features over 5000 bottles of wine is contracted from solid timbers and brass. Accessed by a hidden pivot door in the restaurant wall is the show stopping private dining room. the walls are lined with petrified wood and timber charred in the tradition of Japanese shou sugi ban; a 14-seater, six-metre-long dining table of petrified black wood; and soaring high above, an incredible light installation made of 5,000 black lava stones.
