Retaining the bones of this existing Sydney hospitality institution we brought a tongue in cheek nod to the client’s brief to design a New York style bar. We retained most of the original Cargo
Bar fitout which is still readable under a thick coating of soft grey render and stucco giving a strong contrast to the new furniture pieces and insertions designed to reflect a 1980s silhouette. The existing bars have been clad in blocks of backlit glass to bring a disco overlay to the space.
