The Old Library restaurant by Hecker Guthrie, Sydney

December 11th, 2012 by retail design blog

Located in a seaside suburb of Sydney, the Old Library was originally a Methodist church build circa 1908, and went on to be the shire library in the 1970’s. The original building had great bones and an existing level of texture (exposed beams and timber lining). Working within the voluminous spaces we created a sense of intimacy and gathering through creating a series of rooms within rooms and spaces within spaces. Custom furniture pieces and a natural palette of oak, linen, white timber and blackened steel contribute to the relaxed and somewhat domestic space that is The Old Library.
