Project Description

In 2008, Strategic Spaces were engaged to collaborate with architects Herbert + Mason to design the faceted feature wall at Gingerboy, Melbourne.

Gingerboy offers a funky interpretation of authentic Asian dishes and flavours from various parts of Thailand, Malaysia and China. Set it Melbourne’s bustling culinary arena, the restaurant is centred on a modern Australian adaptation of hawker-style street food.

The restaurant’s aesthetic was to be a New York and Shanghai fusion. The space inside features cave like bamboo, Ferrari-red interiors, an all black mirrored dining room, Asian graphics and comics and transparent Philippe Stark Ghost Chairs.

Our Director designed a custom wall for the upstairs bar. Fabricated in aluminium and anodised in a rich matte red the wall enhanced the dimly lit and intimate mood of the upstairs space. The design involved repeated patterns of intricate folding panels.
