I believe an interior is not just a room to be used but more to convey feelings through sight, touch, sound and smell. Using materials, textures and light an interior can be transformed into something that people will want to come to. A destination to help create everlasting memories, as design has always been and always will be for the people.


“I find inspiration in the slightest silhouette, the fold of a skirt, the face of a Japanese bride in traditional dress, the weave in a basket, the flow of Islamic calligraphy or a dancer’s pose, to name a few” – Khai Liew
This multi-layered contemporary canteen and function space, supports and provides well needed funds to the UNICEF foundation. The overall space, inspired by furniture designer, Khai Liew, is bursting with clean-cut lines and warm, rich colours reflecting Liew’s signature style Australian material culture.
Solomon Sq’s open layout and large-scale windows creates an overflow of natural light, reinforcing the affable atmosphere. This creates dynamic spontaneity where functional fun comes alive.
The consistent repeated pattern of the layered vertical planes helps divide and section the areas throughout the building. Ground floor is functional with sit down tables, chairs and the canteen servery. Level 1 can be a peaceful casual meeting area for a cup of coffee to then effortlessly transform into a cosy, fun active space with bar facilities for things such as “Friday night drinks”.
A separate function room with lined timber battens and soft furnishings creates a space which is easily transformed with minimum fuss or labour for needs of private and corporate events. This also creates an additional income stream for UNICEF.
