Transformation of an old chemist building into a modern, industrial style restaurant, function area and roof top deck
LOCATION: Seymour Street, Traralgon
Momo’s restaurant was constructed as a 3 stage project with the initial main restaurant built on a site that was originally a chemist.
The entire 387m2 building was fully gutted out to bare walls and floors and from start to finish the restaurant was up and running within 5 weeks of commencement of project.
The project included full commercial kitchen, dining area seating up to 150 people and main bar using recycled timber railway sleepers. Other features included grind and polished concrete floors, acid washed feature paint finish to walls, recycled brick feature walls and the creation of recycled exposed pipeworks for an industrial design.
Second stage of the project was a function centre in an upstairs area of the building that was originally used for storage.
To enable ceiling height clearance, large engineered beams were craned in to open up the roof space and roof windows installed for natural light. The Industrial design element was then incorporated with hand- made exposed copper pipework running through the bathroom areas. Large full frameless glass walls were installed to top of the staircase to create a noise buffer between the main restaurant and upstairs function area and the use of the glass has created a seamless and open flow between the two areas.
Final stage of the project was a roof top deck linked to the upstairs function room. Over 200 metres of decking materials were laid as well as large supporting structural steel columns and beams. Feature bench seating, special lighting and staff service areas were also created to provide a deck area that can hold up to 150 people.
