The concept for the 70 seat restaurant is a series of abstracted lines and circles of longitude and latitude. The intersecting lines reference global coordinates and pays homage to the international destinations that will inspire atlas dining’s quarterly changing menu.

The intersected lines are bold at the larger scale but are also subtly evident in the detailed design. the concept operates at this dual scale which brings the space together as a unified whole.

A brass ring suspended overhead in the main dining space represents a master latitude line and seeks to tie the space and concept together. It provides a compass that orientates you in the space.

The intimate dining space features an open kitchen pass providing a view through to the wood fire oven, hearth and kitchen.

The old heritage buildings' mottled walls are exposed and an old brick fireplace, uncovered during construction, was reused and poetically turned into a place to store wood for the hearth and the oven.
