Restaurant Navi has continued its success, recently being shortlisted for best hospitality design at the Australian Interior Design awards.
The Australian Interior Design Awards recognise and celebrate interior design excellence via a credible, industry- based program, which is backed by the Design Institute of Australia, the professional body representing Australian designers.
At Navi, the dishes on the menu are all sourced from local producers, so we wanted the owners love for hand foraging produce to shine through to the material palette of the interiors. Earthy tones are seen in the green laminate which intimately combines with the slate clad bar and green marble dining tables which are complimented by cork ceiling tiles and French wash painted walls.
Careful spatial planning was integral to the success of the restaurant as the design required a space that wasn’t ‘stuffy’ in its intimacy Diners can visually or verbally interact with the chefs from the dining and bar areas with views of the open plan kitchen adding to Navis’ unique and inclusive dining experience.
We look forward to finding out the results at the gala night in May. Until then have a look at our entry and the other shortlisted projects here.
