Castell Restaurant at Petaling Jaya, Selangor Darul Ehsan
Concept : The concept for this restaurant was to maintain, restore and express the various colonial – inspired artefacts and artworks, both mobile and immobile, through the process of refurbishment. Various colonial based elements, such as Victorian motif wallpapers, Art Noveou inspired staircase railing and light fixtures, terracotta tiles and indeed even certain chairs and tables, were all refurbished and reused to create a visual composition that combined design elements of the past with modern sensisbilities of the present, in a controlled contemporary setting.
Features : The direction of the design was determined by the preference of the existing older patrons who frequent the restaurant, but given a contemporary makeover to attract the younger generation. Ultimately, the combination of both concerns established a cosy but nostalgic-inducing, colonial-type atmosphere within the restaurant that was appealing to both demographics of the clientele.
