Cazalys Barassis Restaurant

our services: concept design, planning

location: Cazalys, Cairns City

size: approx. 450sqm

completed: July 2018

Barassis Restaurant at Cazalys has proven so popular that it is frequently overflowing.  With such enthusiastic diners, a subtle balancing of the acoustics was required.  As a positive design element, concentric rows of sound absorbing ‘banners’ were arrayed around the circular seating arrangement.  The acoustic treatment was carefully calculated to ensure a softening of the sound landscape for dining comfort, without deadening.  A design solution that harmonizes aesthetics & comfort to ensure the ongoing popularity of the venue.
