La Cantina is a well known hospitality business, with more than 5 venues (new ones opening all the time!) operational across Sydney. Their latest venture in St Leonards was a natural move for the business, as it was an opportunity to create a warm and welcoming space, that would complement their well established food and beverage offerings.
La Cantina wanted a space with a fundamentally simple design, using a neutral colour palette and a range of materials.
To achieve this, Blank Creatives provided a full service interior design, working through the design in detail, processing ideas from planning and inspiration imagery into 3D visuals and material selections for the client. By taking this detailed approach, the design was able to evolve into a strong and well-thought-out space. This process also allowed the client to fully understand the end result, as deciphering document drawings are not everyone's forte.
The result is a beautiful and modern space. The design is a blend between modern contemporary and art deco accents. It takes cues from the art deco era, borrowing design features such as penny round tiles, frosted globe lighting and brass accents.
Warm honey oak chevron timbers line the dining area walls with a hand painted graphic illustration on the wall, designed by Chris Nixon. The illustration adds a modern edge to the otherwise subtle design palette and brings character and life to the space.
The dining area features custom-designed communal tables, timber and vinyl custom bench seating and bespoke white wire lighting features with lush plants cascading down over them, adding a warm atmosphere.
Small details such as the inset Bolon rugs below the communal tables help to break up the space. By keeping the tones of the Bolon and mottled floor tiles in harmony, this division of space is subtle, simple and allows the space to maintain a unified design vision.
La Cantina is a perfect example of how Blank Creatives can help create a space that is not only pleasing to the eye, but also allows a business to take on its own personality.
