GREEN MOUSTACHE ROOFTOP GARDEN BAR & RESTAURANT
Hospitality Design - Redwah Project
Welcome to North Sydney's first rooftop bar! Redwah Interior Design Studio worked in close collaboration with architect John Cochrane and builders Erilyan to provide the Green Moustache with a curious and playful hospitality design. The interior design concept included a space plan, design direction flooring, RCP layouts, all finishes and detailing documentation, as well as FF & E selections and styling.
Street appeal was essential to the multi-level bar design, with natural light a key element in its construction. Free-flowing areas for dining, relaxing and small functions allowed separation of various areas while at the same time blurring them seamlessly into one venue. The open yet intimate modern design uses a variety of existing and natural materials, in addition to custom design work. These materials form the base of the colour palette, which is subtle and warm with pops of vibrant colour.
The dramatic existing glazed façade sets the basis for the creation of this exceptional venue, with robust finishes used to provide texture, movement and fun throughout the contemporary design. A custom floor mosaic tile was introduced to the outside spaces and terrazzo-look floor tiles cut to create a uniquely patterned floor. Working closely with Diemme, custom painted artwork was developed and applied directly onto the brick walls. The existing lift and stair shafts were clad in contemporary brick veneers, while mirrored corridors playfully reflect the various lights and people on their way to the bathrooms. To reduce the noise made by the exquisite hard floor finishes, timber slatted acoustic ceilings were specified in some areas.
Throughout the bar layout design, large-scale wall bracket lights form a feature and add to the contemporary hospitality design. Interior design details such as the green granite with brass inlay table tops by Crank Furniture and the printed pattern table tops by Baresque reinforce the oasis feeling, while touches of neon add a little fun and a sense of play. Assorted plant life complements this greenhouse-like structure, with landscaping by The Greener Pathway and faux hanging plants from Florabelle providing the alfresco escape diners are looking for. The entire team worked with tomorrow people studio to bring the Green Moustache branding to like and truly reflect the experience awaiting.
An inspiring addition to the North Sydney skyline, the Green Moustache is the perfect place to relax with a cocktail and sample the local produce on offer. Nestled above the busy streets, it provides many viewpoints from which to savour the experience - all in the comfort of this innovative hospitality design.

The Green Moustache was shortlisted in the Best Bar Category at the 2019 EAT & DRINK DESIGN AWARDS.
It was such an honour to have been nominated alongside such innovative creative teams.
"Ruth has been heavily involved in our two latest projects. The Treehouse Hotel, a bar and restaurant with outside seating, and Green Moustache, a fit out of a rooftop bar and restaurant on top of an existing building.
We engaged Ruth because of her vast experience in not only interior design but design of spaces, how they interact with customers and operationally, and being cognisant of the importance of creating the right mood and feeling that is so critical in creating a successful hospitality venue.
Ruth has many strengths, her ability to listen, to interpret, her amazing sense of style and how things work together, she is flexible and versatile but will never compromise on issues that might detract or lessen the impact of the full design.
I could not recommend her more highly to anyone if they are looking for an incredibly talented, committed and inspirational designer."
