We created a new concept for Killiney Kopitiam restaurant in Westfield, Sydney. Killiney Kopitiam opened their first restaurant back in 1919 on Killiney Road in Singapore. Famous for serving delicious Singapore street food, it was important that we captured the essence of the brand’s history. Part of our design brief was to retain the long-curved wall of the existing shopfront. A beautiful brushed render finish was applied creating the perfect canvas for Leia Sidery (from The Art of Wall) to install hand painted orchid murals, paying homage to the national flower of Singapore. New window openings with colonial shutters allow passers-by a glimpse inside of what is a calm and welcoming interior. The interior materials palette includes re-finished oak floors, compressed cement sheeting, rattan, and warm timber joinery complemented by touches of greenery throughout the space. Cosy booth seating areas are highlighted with earthy orange pendant lighting. The three-dimensional bamboo ceiling fans out from the bar area adding to the natural warmth and ambiance of the interior.
