Interior Design: Avido Restaurant & Wine Garden

November 17, 2010

Matt Woods combines old and new materials to create a warm friendly environment for this new restaurant in Paddington.

The primary aim of the Avido design has been to create a warm, interesting, unique and friendly environment through the combination of reclaimed and new materials. The individual elements have been selected with their environmental impact in mind and are fused with classic design techniques and furnishings in a contemporary, slightly industrial way.

Patrons are greeted with an intricate macramĂ© ceiling feature by Smalltown’s Sarah Parkes, which is offset by deconstructed brick walls, warm timber counters, blasts of colour and an eclectic range of classically styled furnishings. Diners are encouraged to “hang their hats” and call Avido home either in the dining room, at the bar or in the 40-seat wine garden, which offers the additional bonus of the theatre of an open kitchen.
