When we were approached to redesign the a la cart restaurant on the farm, we noticed how underutilised the space was. The interior was also orientated inwards, it was dark and uninviting.
By opening up the inside spaces to a glassed in balcony and incorporating its views over the vineyards and out to the Constantiaberg mountains in the backdrop, light flowed into the restaurant and the space was transformed.
We reclaimed a section of the restaurant previously used as a service bar and designed a 5 meter long velvet sofa with a handmade clay tiled wall behind it.
The brief included the design of a wine bar for special and old vintages. The back of bar made with a mix of waxed steel and French oak, holds wine bottles with backlighting onto the old panelled walls behind. In front is a monolithic book-matched black marble bar.
