Project • By Liqui GroupBars

The Wellhead Cocktail Bar

The Wellhead is a relatively small cocktail bar design for Liqui, but this did not lessen the amount of consideration and attention to detail that we gave to the project. This new coffee and cocktails venue is housed in a historic listed building in the Finzels Reach area of Bristol’s vibrant city centre. Therefore it was an important part of the brief that we retained original features such as the exposed brickwork and arched windows in our interior design. It was also a tight space and the building was an awkward shape which meant that to make it function as a cocktail bar design some careful space planning was required with due consideration given to ‘flow’. This led to a bespoke angular coffee counter design which allo... More

Project • By FyraRestaurants


The Bardem cocktail bar quickly became a new place to go for friends of cultivated bar culture in the heart of Helsinki. The independent interior concept is the work of the renowned local design studio Fyra, and its modern interpretation is based on the principle of a Speakeasy Bar. Fyra plays with the combination of old and new in a stylistically confident manner and focuses on a large, central bar in the deliberately discreetly lit, atmospherically mysterious room. Ceramic tiles of the Craft series of Agrob Buchtal skilfully complement this relaxed flair and convince with an impressive visual depth as well as a lively play of colours.   The cocktail bar Bardem is situated in a first-class location in Helsinki. Many office buildings... More

Il Rifrullo

The project starts from the analysis and study of Rifrullo, a place with an ancient history that has never lost popularity in the Florentine panorama. Il Rifrullo has won the challenge of time because it has been able to transform itself by showing off new faces and styles over the years, but always maintaining its unmistakable vintage trait.For these reasons, the new Rifrullo envisages the design of a space that manages to combine modernity and tradition.The intervention aims to create a contemporary place that takes into account the two lives that take place within it, that of the bistro during the day and that of the cocktail bar during the evening.The materials used reflect the tradition of the city and the culture of craftsmanship of t...

Daddy Long Legs

Taking its cues from the vibrant, multicultural neighbourhood that speaks to a contemporary Australia, the multifunctional design celebrates the vibrancy of local materials and colours so often overlooked. Daddy Long Legs’ knits together the binaries of Western Australia’s unique landscape - rugged yet polished, airy but earthy, both expansive and intimate.   What are the sustainability features? The bar design featured predominantly locally made and sourced materials that was both in line with the concept and the designer’s desire to restrict unnecessary consumption. Similarly, the furniture, the bar, the dining chairs, was all custom made locally - even the decorative light fixtures were all sourced from small, i... More

W San Francisco

W San Francisco is an electric urban oasis located in the bustling heart of San Francisco’s SoMa District. Boasting 401 guest rooms including 12 suites, the hotel offers a hip and stylish downtown retreat. As part of the highly anticipated Gold Fever hotel refresh, Skylab was enlisted to design the guest rooms and major amenity spaces for a multi-phased renovation (the hotel lobby is slated for the next phase). The new Gold Fever design draws its inspiration from San Francisco’s remarkable region and rich history, abstracting elements from the past and present—including a healthy dose of funky elements from its psychedelic days—to marry history and culture with the hotel experience. The rooms and suites surprise with... More

A cosy outdoor for a restaurant in the Alps

In the splendid setting of the Alps, overlooking a lake, you will find Philiaz restaurant and cocktail bar, a trendy and elegant place conceived from an innovative and unique catering idea. In fact, the name derives from Phileas Fogg, a character created by Jules Verne for his eighty-day round-the-world trip around the world, and the motivation is simple and evocative: the restaurant opens the doors of its kitchen, in alternation, to chefs from the most varied places in the world.   But at the Philiaz restaurant, gastronomic innovation rhymes with dialogue with nature. In fact, inside the cocktail bar the visitor is enveloped by tones of grey and brown, present everywhere from the seats to the walls, from the curtains to the counter... More

All Eyes on Me

                        All Eyes On Me is a modern, 90s-inspired cafe that is built around the lifestyle, phrases and image of the American rapper Tupac Shakur.                        Retrieving its name from the rapper’s song, the cafe had to offer more than just food. We recreated the atmosphere of the times, representing a mix of the 90s rap vibe and modern hip-hop culture.                        Knowing the love people have for neon, we made the interior dark enough for the lights to be even more visible.             &nbs...

Prima Café

Park Associati creates the concept for an original hybrid space in the heart of Milan for the tech company   Designed to accompany the life of customers and the neighbourhood from morning till night, Prima Café is not meant to be a showcase of the client's main activity in the insurance field, rather a place encapsulating different functions, from actualcafé, to bistro, from restaurant to cocktail bar.   But the requirement that needed to be fulfilled did not just relate to food consumption or entertainment. Increasingly, private life, social life and work converge on a single container; venues are thereforeconforming to this trend by becoming extensions of private homes and offices, with an added compo...

NESO 2 – Paris, France

A cocktail bar with a warm, contemporary and cozy atmosphere designed for Neso 2 by Caroline Tissier, who also designed the custom Fold Panel positioned in front of the main entrance.    A 3-dimensional and acoustic WOOD-SKIN sculpture that perfectly integrates with the surroundings, thanks to the choice of material: an ultra-thin reconstituted wood veneer.    Though the finished result is visually complex, the entire installation process took only a matter of hours, thanks to the intrinsic simplicity and efficiency of the WOOD-SKIN system.

Paper Crane

A playful and colourful Asian inspired restaurant and bar, for the new Riley Hotel located in Cairns, Queensland. We wanted to create a clean and beautiful design bolstered by strong interior detail, complimenting the high-quality food offering and withstanding the standard of a five-star resort. What was the brief? The brief was to create a contemporary and refreshing environment for the guests of the Riley Hotel. The interior finishes and aesthetic needed to reflect the subtropical context of the Riley Hotel, but also inject elements of contemporary asian aesthetic referencing Japanese forms, materials and architecture.   The large interior environment included outdoor from deck dining, large open plan interior environment, a coc...

Project • By Aces of SpaceBars


Fat Chow is a buzzing Cantonese restaurant and cocktail bar in The Point, Dubai. Its origin story goes back to when Aces of Space absorbed the abundant energy and boldness of the streets of Hong Kong and transformed it into a concept powerful and dynamic enough to slay a dragon. The buzzworthy exterior design of the restaurant radiates the energy you’ll find inside, using neon elements that make a colorful comeback in the interior design.

Sawmill Market

Sawmill Market is a contemporary interpretation of an unsung New Mexico — a place synonymous with electric pink sunsets, bleached white cow skulls, pinon pine and the otherworldly landscapes immortalized by Georgia O’Keeffe and D.H. Lawrence. Together with owner Jim Long (Heritage Hotels and Resorts) and F&B Concept Developers Lauren and Jason Greene (The Grove Cafe), Islyn Studio drew directly from the rich cultural heritage of the Land of Enchantment to create Sawmill Market, a food hall, culinary laboratory and homage to the cultural imagination of New Mexico.   Transformed from a sprawling and sunlit lumber warehouse in the Sawmill District, just a stone’s throw from Albuquerque's original settlement of Old...

MyLounge – Brisbane Airport - Australia

This MyLounge project was an international scheme located amongst the departure gates at Brisbane Airport, Australia. Following similar design principles in the My Lounge brand, this project adapted the concept to suit the Australian market. The design retained the relaxed, welcoming, and homely atmosphere while maximising the social style of lounging favoured by the client. A ‘make your own’ cocktail bar, self-service bistro, comfortable lounging space and games room, cater to the guests every need. A large portion of the project was bespoke joinery design that carefully divided up the space. Reclaimed timber, terrazzo tops and exposed concrete finishes are some of the materials used to capture the texture and character of the... More
