galileo kaleidoscope at the old bristol arms hotel : pyrmont, sydney 2008

overall design concept, interior design and fit out, signage

The original Bristol Arms Hotel, completed 1876, demolished in 1922, and reconstructed 1923 is now the new office for GK, brand research strategists. The overall concept was to compliment the building's historic architectural elements and create a new brand reflecting the character of the building. While existing feature tiles hold dominance, the space was softened with warm furnishings. Highlights include custom designed joinery, furniture and carpet, as well as fun
and creative, bar-themed elements like keg tables and GK clients logos displayed on drink coasters.
