The projected required a creative solution which satisfied the requirements of all 3 clients; Sydney Airport, Coopers Beer & Emirates Retail Leisure Australia. Originally boarding gate lounge area which was separated into 2 tenancies at the end of a typical airport white space within the Virgin Terminal. The brief was to design a Hudsons Coffee and a Coopers Ale House Bar within those tenancies which complimented the terminal space & provided the correct brand presence to attract & hold customers.

LIMESTONE BAR - Emirates Retail Leisure Australia / Patrick Torcasio Design

Interior Design - Hospitality


Our brief from Canberra Airport (which is privately owned) & Emirates Retail Leisure (Australia) was basically ‘WOW’ us and create a Jewel for their new terminal building & central atrium space... so we set about certainly to do that. “LIMESTONE” takes its name from Canberra’s origins – as the city is built on what was formerly the ‘limestone plains’. The aim was also to showcase the ‘local’ element which has also been incorporated into every aspect of the bar; from fit-out to food and beverage menu, with an aim of celebrating the excellence of local foods and wines.

Niji Restaurant - Niji / Forward Thinking Design

Interior Design - Hospitality


To create authenticity in the design of a Japanese restaurant, one MUST experience Japan. Vanessa Cullen, M.D of Forward Thinking Design, drew upon her years studying Jujitsu, and her time spent in Japan, to create the sophisticated depth of symbolism and emotion that characterises Niji Restaurant in Double Bay.

MoVida Sydney - MoVida / Adam Dettrick Architects

Interior Design - Hospitality


With an identity influenced by equal parts Melbourne and Barcelona, the design of MoVida Sydney references both whilst preserving a fun, informal and theatrical setting. The brief was to deliver and evolve the MoVida experience and warmly welcome Sydney-siders into the MoVida family.
