In A Rush Westpac Centre

In A Rush is located in the large foyer space of the new Westpac Centre on Collins Street in the Melbourne CBD. The project brief was to design a space that is warm and inviting with a refined material palette that responds to the venues location.

Raw materials including stone, timber and steel are used throughout, and the layout ensures easy navigation from food to coffee. There are ample seating options including open banquette seating at the front, a large central share table and tucked away nook seating at the rear.

A subtle repetition of angulated details comes through in the stone clad servery, suspended timber blades to the ceiling and a bold graphical feature applied to the rear wall. Faceting the facade of the servery gives the space a sense of movement, a motif that moves with their fast pace service. The use of stone provides a stunning contrast to the raw timber and steel and natural leathers and ambient lighting help to soften the overall feeling of the space.
