Leaf-print walls, rattan seating and deep-green decor details merge to form the tropical interiors of this restaurant in Tasmania which Biasol has designed to evoke the atmosphere of a holiday hot-spot in Mexico.
The restaurant is situated in the Sandy Bay suburb of Tasmania’s capital, Hobart, serving up a seasonal menu of dishes made from locally grown ingredients.
“Food, design and community are at the forefront of [Tulum’s] tranquillity and charm,” explained the studio.
“So we designed a warm, inviting and textured environment – a casual and easy-going experience that feels like a tropical destination.”
Shades of green that evoke Tulum’s dense rainforests have been applied throughout – sage-coloured tiles clad the front of the drinks bar, while veiny emerald marble forms its countertop.
Deep-green palm fronds appear in the leaf-print wallpaper that covers surfaces in the restaurant’s sunroom. Pots overflowing with winding vine plants also add textural interest.
Sandy-hued cushions dress the seating banquettes that run down the centre of the dining space, some of which are separated by short rattan partitions.
Rattan has also been used to make the backrests of the bistro-style chairs and pendant lamps that dangle from the ceiling.
On-the-go customers or those looking to have a quick and casual meal can sit on stool seats around a low-lying counter table that’s close to the entrance.
A neon sign of a peach – Sisterhood’s brand logo – has been mounted on one of the walls, providing a bold splash of colour.
Details like the restaurant’s sandwich board and disposable coffee cups have also been completed in bright orange, a feature the studio hopes will also nod to the colour of the lichen that covers rocks along Tasmania’s rocky coast.
Biasol is based in Cremorne, an inner suburb of Melbourne, and is headed up by Jean-Pierre Biasol.
The studio’s Sisterhood project isn’t the only dining space that tries to channel sunny central American climes – Vancouver eatery Tacofino Oasis boasts colourful furnishings akin to what could be seen in popular 1950s Mexican beach resorts like Acapulco.
