A black low ceiling with leather walls and furniture were chosen to create a strongly masculine room that is minimalist and modern in detail. A long bar wrapped in leather with inset black granite traverses the length of the room and a serving counter of similar detail partitions the room to the kitchen behind. The white and high ceiling volume is much more open with layers of double height curtaining. These curtains form an enclosure within the hard roughened concrete shell. The silky red curtain introduces layers of translucency and opacity between tables and groups of diners. Detail and furniture is chosen to be much more light, transparent and delicate. The sensuality of the materials and textures are deliberately associated with the distinctive rooms as are the colours and surface qualities that activated by filtered or diffused light.
