LW Design redesigns a Dubai classic
Well-known and loved restaurant Traiteur has undergone a name change and face-lift. The restaurant has reopened as ‘Brasserie du Park’, but has retained its culinary offering of chic French cuisine. It forms part of The Promenade at Park Hyatt Dubai Creek, a destination that includes two other dining venues alongside the Creek.
“We were honoured to redesign such an icon of the Dubai restaurant scene. The new look is very aligned with the sophisticated crowd that dines there and had to work for both daytime and evening,” said Pia Lakshmi Sen, Associate at LW Design.
The space boasts a large interactive kitchen that is fully open for guests to wander through. A central banquette sits at the base of a double volume space, which is broken up by a striking blown glass spheres and brass chandelier. Rich oceanic colours are featured, a visible thread woven through the painted timber wall panelling, marble counter and table tops, mohair, wool and leather upholstery fabrics. The 3D timber flooring is visually engaging and draws the design together through its use of the nautical hues.
As expected from a signature restaurant, a lot of attention has been paid to refined details, from the brass beading on furniture to the mirrors that allow guests with their backs to the main space to feel more included.
The original distinctive 3-dimensional wall feature has been retained but painted white with brass strips. Shelving breaks up the large open areas into more distinct spaces and is selectively filled with handpicked vases and feature items.
Large French doors open to the terrace, which is set up for al fresco dining.
The concept and strategy for Brasserie du Park was created by Meraki & Modus, with interior design and completion managed by LW Design.
