Hide Bar


The project is an interior fitout of the semi basement of Harmer Architecture Restaurant/Gallery of 2001.  The bar is dedicated to the tasting and sale of estate grown wines so that the upper floor restaurant and gallery has more space.

The interior adopts a semi industrial approach to finishes and materials to express a workshop environment.  Steel plate and reinforcement mesh wine racks, stained plywood booths, bar, storage and a  concrete floor are softened by a padded cow hide bar front and upholstered seating.  The main feature of the bar is the circular red marblo tasting tables around which people can sit in groups of 3 or 4 to enjoy wine.
