From a design perspective it’s always a great thrill to see your creative designs come to life and how each designs engages with customers. This month Zone Design had  some amazing new stores open to rave reviews, including, Nando’s Myaree store, Ferguson Plarre’s flagship store at Chadstone Shopping Centre  and Schnitz at High point Shopping Centre. For a quick snap shot of these new stores see our latest photos below.

Nando’s Myaree in WA.

The existing Nando’s Myaree restaurant took over the adjoining tenancy to double their floor space.

The two spaces were unified by a timber clad ceiling with an undulating stepped African motif which ran into various sections of the walls highlighting key elements such as the condiments unit and the caged seating pod. This central theme was also reintroduced into the front of house floor in a subtle combination of light and dark tiling.

The pop of colour was achieved through a red linear banquette with distinctive curved ends which winds its way through the dining area creating different zones.

The alfresco area opens up the internal restaurant via folding doors allowing the inside out and the outside in.

The new Nando’s restaurant has been applauded by customers in Myaree who just love the new look and feel.

Ferguson Plarre Chadstone Shopping Centre

This new store sets a new benchmark for cafes in the Chadstone Shopping Centre precinct.

The design brief was to go back to the brands European heritage, to develop a store look that is reminiscent of an elegant European patisserie with there large picture windows showcasing an indulgent selection of assorted cakes and pastries. The store is framed by an overhead awning that define and are so characteristic of the shopping boulevards of Europe.

The result is a distinctive and elegant store that has customers queuing up for the experience.

Schnitz High Point Shopping Centre

Schnitz’s largest new store at High point Shopping Centre is their largest format store yet at 270sm.

The store look and feel takes it’s inspiration from a Bavarian Bauhaus or chalet with over sized timber rafters overhead, a large feature shingled pendant light and open fireplace. Festoon lighting and planter boxes add to the in-store ambiance. The design combines loose informal dining with booth seating for a more intimate dining experience.
