Alexander &CO has recently completed Stanton&Co, a restaurant interior fit out of an existing heritage shell. The venue is designed for 250 patrons and features a fine bar/bistro offering internal and external dining with an open show kitchen. The restaurant is housed within the greater Cannery precinct in Rosebery which is a heritage development including other food, beverage and commercial tenants.
The project explored various timber panelling, joinery and metal structures, including the oversized zinc kitchen 'hood' which shields the view of the dropped kitchen ceiling required to achieve food compliance. A study of traditional details and heritage panelling, the tone is warm, expressive and refined within a robust and exposed structural shell.
The project is an adaptive reuse within a heritage shell. The shell architecture is retained fully with all new works being constructed to be wholly reversible.
