Project summary

Informed by the conceptual narrative of ‘Future Nostalgia,’ the design of The Charles Grand Brasserie & Bar takes cues from the building’s rich heritage, reimagined through a contemporary lens. Sitting within The Charles Plaza, an imposing and finely executed Art Deco building.

The interior evokes a sense of glamour, a homage to the Interwar Period when dining in the city was a rare occasion to be celebrated. The design approach explores the tension and juxtaposition of a modern insertion within a heritage framework.

The design of The Charles Grand Brasserie & Bar compliments the building within which it dwells and delivers on the vision Etymon for the space. It also benefits how we operate the venue and provides wonderful warm, elegant spaces for our guests to enjoy for work and play. From the clever floor plates and joinery design to the fixtures and finishes to the texture and ambience created from the carefully curated artwork, every element attracts the attention of our guests and visitors. So much so, The Charles is gaining momentum for the design alone and we are thrilled with the results.
