There’s a surprising restaurant tucked away in one of Melbourne laneways where the food and atmosphere is ridiculously good. With a great menu and drinks list, cleaver use of GoodWood Victorian ash battens allow light and shadow to creep about creating depth and acoustic smarts. As quoted by the Australian design review “This combination between light and heavy, or strength and fragility, helps to cocoon customers while amplifying a sense of space – the constant visual reminder of right angles and exposed lattice creating the impression of being inside a three dimensional architect’s model. Then again, you could be forgiven for feeling like you are sitting within a traditional bamboo steaming pot.”
The restaurant fit out was curated by March Studio who are no stranger to GoodWood branded Victorian ash products. Rodney Eggleston has led March Studio to a number of stunning projects using Victorian Ash including Aesop store in Paris.
One of the most notable features about the Lucy Liu Restaurants design, from the perspective of a passionate ASH employee, is the use of finger jointed lengths to minimise waste. GoodWood branded products are well known for their environmental credentials and finger jointing the material into set lengths contributes further by reducing offcuts and improving the yield from every board.
