The Stables Bar, established in 2013, has become an iconic food and beverage venue in Perth’s CBD, with the name paying homage to one of the cities original horse stables built in 1894. The next step in the evolution of The Stables Bar was to provide a smaller, more intimate offering that established a street frontage to the venue. The clients wanted to create a different identity for the new venue through design, with the branding and interiors establishing a new language whilst referencing the existing bar and historic character of the buildings. The State of Kin team referenced original photos of the façade and applied their own design principles to create a modern interpretation of the building’s historical aesthetic. Internally, finishes consist of terrazzo flooring and a rich yet tonal colour palette applied to sculptural forms and clean lines. delicate feature pendants are located over the bar and juxtaposed by slabs of quartzite and bronze sheeting. The street level bar is flooded with natural light whilst the basement offers an intimate sanctuary from the bustling street above.
