INTERIOR ARCHITECTURE: Shortlisted
“The Peasant’s Table is a new restaurant at the Mezz Shopping Centre which aims to nurture the community of Mt Hawthorn, in inner urban Perth.
The Peasant’s Table has been designed to encourage community interaction and support all things local including local produce, suppliers, design and manufacture. The name for the venue ‘The Peasant’s Table’ directed the design towards imagery of farm cottages and symbols such as the Metters’ Stove, Coolgardie Meat Safe and common farmyard materials such as rope and timber. Industrial detailing and materials that are ‘up-cycled’, ‘recycled’ or ‘handmade’ were utilised throughout the space in response to a limited budget and to reflect the rustic ‘Peasant’ theme.
The Peasants Table was also designed with four ‘zoned’ public areas, being the alfresco, café, bar and dining areas. This zoning strategy combined with the selected materials palette allowed the venue to transition from day to night and provide a casual, family friendly atmosphere with a sense of familiarity and informality”.
