Appreciation towards Ewert Leaf  for providing the following description:

Commune Group是墨尔本领先的商业集团之一,以独特的风格、优质的服务、全新的越南美食和新潮的场所而闻名。火鸟餐厅是Commune Group旗下著名的河内汉娜餐厅的姐妹餐厅,这里具备大胆而亲切的空间,并且带有一丝怀旧之情,提升了汉娜餐厅的原有风格、打造出新的餐厅形象。火鸟餐厅主打越南烤肉,在空间中融入复古材质和波普艺术,区别于汉娜餐厅。

Commune Group are one of the more progressive and cutting edge hospitality groups in Melbourne known for their flair, great service, new take on Vitetnamese food, and stylish venues. Designed as a sister restaurant to The Commune Group’s celebrated Hanoi Hannah restaurants, the brief for Firebird called for a bold yet approachable space with a hint of nostalgia, ultimately elevating Hanoi Hannah’s narrative to create a new identity. The restaurant was to be differentiated from its forerunners by celebrating the theatre of Vietnamese BBQ grilling, while adding some retro materiality and pop art throwbacks.

Both physical and social challenges were encountered when repurposing a dark warehouse into a new venue. The removal of the first floor to reveal a double height volume transformed the interior environment and allowed for natural light to flood in. Balancing a new identity whilst bringing the existing clientele along for the ride required a carefully considered play on spatial flow and to reflect the flair of the people. An eclectic mix of finishes, textures, patterns and colours create the warm and inviting Firebird atmosphere. A bar pavilion is inserted along the Eastern edge, finished with burnished tiles and a coloured glass canopy. Brickwork dividers create definition between dining areas, animated with pendant lights and projections, while the activity of the grill is framed by glass louvres; a subtle nod to the streetscapes of Vietnam.
