The following case study outlines the process that was undertaken in the 4* Maritime Hotel, Bantry, Co. Cork. Bantry Bespoke Joinery were responsible for the full joinery fit out of this hotel and this case study focuses on the Ocean Restaurant.
The design brief for the Ocean Restaurant was a theme of opulence and glamour and to mirror a maritime theme by recreating a ‘ship’ feel. Canopies in open slatted timber were to hang between each of the timber clad feature columns, emanating dramatic lighting effects throughout. A focal fireplace on the raised area at the end of the restaurant was surrounded in cut timber logs and also featured a slatted curved timber canopy to create an intimate dining experience.
Scope of Works:
Selected Timber to clad entire wall to form slat detail through curved wall and ceiling feature, which was hung from stainless steel tension wires. Class ‘0’ polycarbonate sheeting was used behind the timber slats, which was made of Class ‘0’ mdf with in tumescent spread of flame lacquer. Feature log effect wall cladding to face of recess of feature wall of restaurant. Feature columns were to be equal width and clad in 18mm water boiled ply and faced in 25mm American White Oak and had to achieve class ‘0’ rating.
The fit out of this restaurant was completed in a two week period. The overall ambience and feel to the restaurant is opulence and luxury and in keeping with the design brief.
