project name: Cairns Boatshed

location: Cairns Harbour Lights, Cairns

size: 410sqm

completed: May 2015

Our fifth project with Carlton Horn, the commission was to create a complete & new dining experience that takes advantage of an iconic waterfront location. The design solution integrated branding & the interior to reflect the brasserie style menu. Key styling elements & colours are the foundation for the decor & the branding. The existing infrastructure was stripped back and re-born as The Boatshed – enjoying huge popularity since with locals & tourists alike and living up to the adage Eat, Drink Both.
