    The District

    Shortlisted for Best Retail Design in the 2015 Eat Drink Design Awards, The District is a 3000 square metre dining destination modeled on a futuristic Asian metropolis.

    Project - 09.10.2015

    The District provides a significant hospitality venue to service the upper and lower North Shore community of Sydney. The project deals with the challenges of excess height, a train station and a large characterless open floor plate. The Uncarved Block, lead by Philip Chia, have created a mass dining venue that distorts space and transcends location.

    The 8m ceilings have been divided using architectural forms to create hideaways and laneways, inspired by a futuristic Asian cityscape. Spread across 3000 square metres, The District can seat about 1000 patrons. Pod-like structures extending outside of the existing building envelope create lustrous private dining spaces. 

    The District presents an eclectic mix of high end finishes and furniture from Living Edge, with the materials palette incorporating strong textures, mixed mediums and unique handcrafted materials to immerse the diner in a visual and sensual experience.

    Products from Living Edge include La Chance Bolt Stools, Established & Sons Heidi Stools, Michael Young for EOQ Chair 4a and Stool 4a and Walter Knoll Cuoio Dining Chairs.
