Located in the urban streetscape of South Bank’s Grey Street, Sangria Bar has been created as an extension of the Ole brand of its adjacent sister restaurant.
Drawing on the ambience of a traditional Spanish cantina, the atmosphere needed to be noisy and vibrant without the cliché of a typically themed restaurant.
It was important that we created a separate identity for the Sangria Bar whilst maintaining a strong link to the existing Ole brand. Although the bar sits next to the existing restaurant, they address two very different streetscapes – Ole faces the park on Little Stanley Street, whilst the Sangria Bar opens to the busy and urban Grey Street.
As the tenancy is completely open on two faces, we wanted to design a space that not only addresses the street, but also forms an intimate and private space within. We were able to achieve this through the use of screening, playing with light and texture, and a material pallet that pays homage to the Spanish cantina. Warm timber door details, patterned screens, and Spanish derived graffiti interact with the shop front and the bar to create a vibrant atmosphere. The outcome is a bar with an edgy and individual identity that maintains its connection as the younger sibling to Ole restaurant.
