The Charlim restaurant by Span Design, Sydney – Australia

November 22nd, 2016 by retail design blog


“The Charlim, a Korean BBQ Restaurant designed by Span Design operates as a self-serving aspect where the customer controls the cooking process. It’s created to look young, playful and fun with uses of neon signs, pops of bright colours and lots of timber in an oak finish.


Angles and lines are repeated throughout this entire space from the walls of the exterior to the artwork that’s in the interior which establishes the vibe of hip and cool. The neon magenta stencilled blade signs located at the shopfront immediately attracts the attention of the customer, this is also carried inside the ceiling of the restaurant creating a funky atmosphere.


Another element that adds to the funky atmosphere is the projector installed. As you enter, your eye doesn’t just draw to the ceiling but it will also be drawn to the floor, where the logo is projected.

Exposure is a major component in this design as it forms a relationship between the customer and staff with a great deal of openings, the use of glass as the door at the entrance and exposed ceiling to create a space that’s inviting for the customer.”
