category: hospitality, unbuilt

project name: North Restaurant & Bar

location: Pier Marina, Cairns

size: 890sqm

Myriad were given the task to redesign the Shangri-la’s signature waterfront marina restaurant.

Truly a unique location in the Tropical North, overlooking the Cairns Marina with a relaxed, verdant garden lounge. For a dining & bar experience that will be highly popular with locals, tourists & hotel guests alike.

The service bar is central to the area, dividing the path to the restaurant & bar. The strong form & overhead glazed lighting lantern provides the sparkle and attraction of the bar.

The material palette draws from the venue décor to sit harmoniously within.
Creating a style that employs an elegance, influenced from European traditions. This is a palette that imbues a quality to a venue that is distinctive in Cairns. Classical finishes are employed in a very contemporary manner. Hexagon shadowbox tiles in a palette of soft greys underpin oak timbers; Carrara marble; a deep ocean blue finish to moulded panels; fine black & oak chairs; with accents of silver that tie in the soft aluminium door framing.
