Project of the Month – Foreign Concept

Our Project of the month is a restaurant we completed recently called Foreign Concept. We were asked by the incredible Chef Duncan Ly to help design his dream restaurant, and we couldn’t be more thrilled with the outcome of this passion project.

Custom metal room dividers help break up the space into its distinct areas while allowing visual transparency throughout the space. Plants are seen throughout the restaurant as a way to add a natural element and provide that jungle charm.

Custom hand-painted murals of peacocks, birds and butterflies decorating slender trees create an air of authenticity and whimsicality. Framed by dark stained wood with thin brass inlays these murals are illuminated by adjustable brass fixtures.

Custom coloured wallpaper murals give a dramatic sense of charm, especially when combined with this lantern-esque pendants from – a modern take on the traditional form.

Banquettes are covered in a rusty orange upholstery to add an element of softness and luxury; when combined with trestle-style tables and cane chairs it makes the space feel authentic and complete.

The bar is a modern interpretation of  a classic noodle bar, featuring a high brass kick-plate, open brass shelving, basket weave installed subway tiles and a green marble counter.

The restrooms each feature a different city; complete with a pineapple wall sconce, round mirror, wall mounted sink and gorgeous tile-work. And the doors? We’re still drooling over these custom doors from Metrie!
