Appreciation towards GSBN Studio for providing the following description:

Forty Licks是一家位于悉尼市中心的地下越南餐厅,具有独特的设计和材料。设计对历史建筑采取修补措施,保留历史结构的同时实现了彻底的改造。设计旨在打造独特的建筑装置,以影响最小的方式处理现有建筑的遗留结构。

Forty Licks is a subterranean Vietnamese restaurant in the heart of Sydney City with a unique design and application of materials. The design applies a prosthetic approach to historic buildings that enables radical transformation while preserving heritage fabric. The brief was to design a unique architectural fitout that treated the heritage fabric of the existing building in the lightest possible way.

We designed a prosthetic framework of welded steel mesh with custom clamps that allow the installations removal from the building at any time without any structural damage.

One of the great challenges was to satisfy the number of patrons required as part of the brief. We utilised all areas of the site, resulting in a tiered platform seating arrangement, each connected through the fine interweaving of the rattan installation.
