Project summary

Dandelion Bar, Kitchen and Distillery is multi-faceted hospitality venue that embraces the generosity of open space yet challenges the traditional shopping-center hospitality offering. This 720m2, 500 capacity venue spreads over two floors and looks over “The West Deck” precinct. The project design narrative explores the lifecycle of the Dandelion flower from germination through to maturity, mirroring the regeneration of the broader Karrinyup shopping centre.

Dandelion is a culmination of detailed finishes and functional joinery, collated with an eclectic edit of colour that breaks up volume and programme. It captures a warm, inviting footprint that cultivates a flexible space for drinkers, diners and staff alike, balanced in visual aesthetics to marry the guests other sensory experiences. Dandelion is a collaborative balance between design and function that embodies a benchmark for neighbourhood gatherings and genuine hospitality and social exchange.
