Han Restaurant Launch Success
This week we attended the successful launch of Han Restaurant.
Pattersons were approached by joint owners Min Baek and Grace Kwon, in July to design a restaurant that delivers a western twist on a modern Korean cuisine.
Located in the Geyser building in Parnell, the restaurant offers a unique adaption on Korean charcoal BBQ and modern fine dining.
The fit out comprises of a back of house, kitchen, bar/front of house and a dining room. Conscious consideration was placed on space and layout. One of their food offerings is cooking over charcoal, meaning the biggest part of the design brief was designing an extract system that could service ten tables in a relatively small tenancy.
The dining room is enclosed by a timber dowel screen wall rather than a solid closing, thus creating transparency between cooking space and the diners.
The timber dowels are glossy bokara grey and sit in front of a space cote matt charcoal grey wall. The ceiling, painted charcoal throughout, has 10 suspended stainless steel custom designed extracts hanging from it.
The stainless steel tubes and bending radius’ are standard off-the-shelf. The only custom fabrication on these were the rolled flutes with the butterfly closers.
The downlights are machined from the same dowel as the wall and fitted with tiny LED downlights that are clamped to the extract. The fit out is fairly utilitarian in that its design was driven to be practical and operational and in doing that we ended up with a pretty slick result.
