Client: Cuisine on Charlotte
Materials: laminated Jarrah, cast aluminium, CNC cut steel, tilt slab concrete, toughened glass, custom-cut granite paving
Features: column design integrated as load bearing structural elements
Cuisine on Charlotte is a sidewalk eatery on the corner of Charlotte and Albert streets in Brisbane’s CBD. The project brief included decoration of structural columns, balustrading and a glass feature wall. Instead of decorating off-the-shelf RHS columns, the structures were redesigned and manufactured from scratch to give form and function equal weighting. The balustrading has been purposely cantilevered to emphasise tension, creating movement with asymetrical visual balance. The balustrade can also be used as extra seating for cafe patrons.
