A project born over bottles of wine. Having designed (in collaboration with my partner) the labels for a few bottles of wine for Hunter Valley winery Harkham Wines, The owner, Richard Harkham, was exploring the idea of a new restaurant on site and engaged Tony Bilson as the chef to compliment his wines. We provided a sketch design and rudimentary analysis for the project, but alas it soon fell apart.
The brief was for a rustic but small budget restaurant that captured views of the mountains at top of a small dam. Simple materials of concrete, rough sawn timber and steel re-enforcement, that formed pergolas to provide cover with vines.
This project was designed in collaboration with Andrew Short.

Labels designed by Elsa Dominish and myself.
