Stomping Ground restaurant by Studio Y, Melbourne – Australia

December 14th, 2016 by retail design blog


Stomping Ground Brewery & Beer Hall is a meticulously detailed Melbourne bar, restaurant & brewery that pays tribute to the industrial revolution. Designed by Studio Y, the space is considered in approach with vintage-industrial finishes featuring Carrara marble, timber and blackened steel. A giant working cast iron wood burner makes its presence felt on cold nights, while there are echoes of a 1920s-era train station with bench-style seating and a suspended menu ‘time board’, accented and authenticated with crafted frosted light fittings.


The lighting produced in collaboration with ambience also played a crucial role, with everything from controlling light levels across different zones to refurbishing abandoned fixtures to custom producing a number of original features. The interior has an overwhelming relaxed nature thanks to elements such as the kid’s cubby house or beer garden adorned with luscious greenery and a retractable roof. And of course, the hallmark is the striking 16,145 ft² fully working brewery.
