Habitat1 wins DIA award for Public House

The team from HABITAT 1 is pleased to announce their success at the recent DIA WA 2014 Design Awards hosted by the State Theatre Centre WA.

In a field of over 25 nominees, Habitat1 received a COMMENDATION for their recent project PUBLIC HOUSE in the field of Hospitality.

The project team consisted of Sofia Morais, Carol O’Grady, Lou D’Ermilio and Chris Formby who worked closely with the client to design and construct a South American inspired venue which draws on influences from Brazil, Argentina and Chile.

Judges’ Comments:
The designers have created an interior that is dynamic and flexible through good planning and attention to detail. Overall the scale, fabrication quality and design are impressive. The design has subtle referencing to its South American menu, creating a universal warm hospitality environment that successfully provides a welcome escape from its inner city corporate location.

Habitat1’s brief was to portray a ‘refined rustic elegance’. This was achieved by using dark muted tones accentuated with light geometric timber, bronze bar panelling and feature hanging lighting. Natural materials and quirky accessories give the Public House a warm and captivating style.

Now the hard work is done, it’s time to sit back and enjoy…Caprioska anyone?
