elaia café restaurant
project: Elaia Café Restaurant
location: Launceston, Tasmania
awards: 2005 Excellence Award, Australian Institute of Landscape Architects
description: Located within a heritage listed building in Charles Street, Launceston, the Elaia project involved extensive upgrade and renovation works to an existing café. The scheme seeks to create continuity between corporate colours, food and architecture.
New bifold and sliding windows reinforce the connection between the interior and on street dining while still retaining the integrity of the existing facade.
The intimate interior incorporates large joinery elements finished in timber veneers and coloured laminates, while a dynamic interior and exterior lighting scheme changes throughout the day and night.
