Lively dining - Lotus Asian Restaurant
Lotus is a pan-Asian restaurant in Marrickville and, unlike other Asian restaurants in the area, the clients wanted an upmarket look and feel for their new restaurant.
The layout of the restaurant is long and relatively narrow, so a semi-divide was incorporated with columns and bulkhead to break up the space. This feature was painted in a contrasting colour, Resene Raspberry (warm berry red) which, together with the wall colour, Resene Joie De Vivre (persimmon), and skirting in Resene Mexican Wave (red based orange), create a colourful and lively colour scheme. The colours were chosen for how they appear in the evening, as the restaurant does not open for lunch, as well as to give a fun and convivial atmosphere.
This colour scheme is complemented with two wallpapers used in the back section and behind the servery. Five framed wallpaper panels hang on the painted walls in the restaurant.
Resene Enamacryl gloss waterborne enamel, Resene Lumbersider low sheen waterborne and Resene Lustacryl, semi-gloss waterborne enamel and Resene Ceiling Paint were used for the interior. All of these paint systems are Environmental Choice approved and low odour, minimising the disruption to the smooth running of the restaurant.
The rear door and the street window frames are painted in Resene Dark Rum, a deep brown, which also matches the exterior of the restaurant.
Matching business cards, menus and signage were also created, incorporating the colour scheme ensuring that all elements from the restaurant to the promotional tools project the same modern image.
