Liqui’s seafood restaurant design for Pier 29 was created hand-in-hand with our branding agency Crate47 who created a brand that fits with the nautical theme of our contemporary interior. This was in-line with the all-encompassing brief for this new hospitality venture, and together we developed a subtly branded restaurant interior design that offers a relaxed dining experience for those who enjoy good quality seafood.
With the maritime theme in mind, the interior design of the restaurant combines such elements as navy blue walls and exposed timber. There’s a row of large circular mirror windows running the length of one wall that suggest oversized portholes. We created a slice of theatre with two large installation pieces suspended above the diners which have the appearance of wooden boats stripped of their exterior planking to reveal the ribs and supporting keels beneath. Against another wall stands a pair of similar structures looking like the skeletons of halved boats that have been upended. These open frameworks give the impression of partial shelters for two seating areas.
