The dining room is conceived as an enclosed external courtyard, dappled with light and dotted with colour.

The timber shutters of the building above have been adopted and re-interpreted as a ceiling, suggesting a pergola or arbour.

The arborcultural theme is gently echoed in the lighting, drops of dew on the walls and a tangle of blossoms forming the massive central chandelier.
