Canteen is a restaurant bringing fresh, effortless dining to CarriageWorks, a restored railway workshop in Sydney’s Eveleigh area. The goal was an ambience of accessible glamour, with an interior not typical of current fashion. The scale, rusticity and antiquity of the space determined the design approach. The result is an inviting white oasis within the industrial setting. The main dining area sits stage-like on a raised podium with a banquette surround, mirrored above by a box truss holding stage lights fringed, theatre style, with slit drapes, creating a form of “vertical containment” and a sense of intimacy. <br />

Restaurant Design for Miami inspired by a global influence

Restaurants have become temples of design. I actually wrote that line in an article in the New York Times Dining section several years ago. It was true then; and it’s truer now. We now dine in restaurants that have distinctive identities created for them by top flight designers and architects. This new genre, one in which we are surrounded by design elements that reflect the personality of the chef, the food being served, and a global attitude to embrace their sophisticated clientele. Miami has visitors from all over the world and the design of dining establishments reflects that.  This is the new paradigm for restaurant design. From San Francisco–one of the best ‘food’ cities in the USA — to Manhattan, to Miami to  Italy, France, Asia, Australia or Brazil, Designer Previews can show you the work of  award-winning restaurant designers and architects.
