Jackson Teece was engaged to take the established brand presence of Sydney’s Phoenix Restaurants, and tailor it to the surroundings of Brisbane. A dynamic meeting point for Yum Cha enthusiasts, this restaurant brings to life the colours, aromas and tastes of China.
The design marries Phoenix’s brand with a sophisticated twist on traditional Chinese streetscapes. Using a strong Chinese palette of red, black and gold, the interior design creates an engaging and moody ambience. The red glow from the pendant clusters is reminiscent of Chinese lanterns, while dark-stained timber dowels encompass and protect the space in a way that reflects China’s towering bamboo forests.
- The general dining area is focused on a faster paced Yum Cha and a la carte offering. Extensive timber panelling with brass accents form the backdrop for this space, allowing the feature pendant lantern clusters to take centre stage, immersing diners in a familiar, yet far-off location as they socialise and savour their experience.
