The tasting room space at Quoin Rock was transformed into a fine dining restaurant — Gåte. Our main task was to create the most comfortable space for a client to enjoy a fine dining experience for a durataion of 2,5-4 hours.
So, only natural materials and light colours have been used in the restaurant interior. The idea was to keep it as light as possible.
Two existing brick walls have been removed with the purpose to open internal space to the outside natural surrounding — we have decided to “bring the landscape” inside the restaurant. Symbols of the vine production have been used as the core in Gåte's interior design.
The custom made oak bar counter became the central focus point of the restaurant. The prototype of the bar counter was a French oak barrel. Solid wood banded lights above the Bar counter brings dynamic to the composition. It shows a fermentation process in a barrel — how the wine is circulating inside the barrel.
Three columns in the restaurant space are framed with solid wood oak panel — conceptualised old vines.
All restaurant furniture was designed by us — dining chairs, tables and the big leather bench along the wall — in order to create the most comfortable space and to finish the interior design with each small element that complements the main concept of the Gate restaurant interior design.
