Interior Design: Dundas and Faussett

December 20, 2010

Chris Connell Design infuse an Albert Park café with warm timber panelling and an elegantly restrained colour palette.

The fitout for Dundas and Faussett has been created with flexibility in mind: The space appeals to a bar and dining crowd by night, and a café crowd by day. Limed oak panels line the internal skin, with cutouts at the existing windows revealing the edge and thickness of the timber.

The central bar divides the space in two, creating separate zones. A long banquette seat accentuates the long, narrow space, complemented by the lines of the overhead lights. Black spun steel lights drip from the ceiling down to the bar and table tops. Recessed linear channels, sliced into the ceiling, add length and relief from the flat surface, adding a sculptural element. A simple and restrained colour palette combined with a high level of detail with materials has created an honest, warm and confident interior.

    Hi there,
    I love the internal timber panelling. Is there a supplier I could get this product or something similar from on the Sunshine Coast or Brisbane?
