Levantine Hill Estate

For this hospitality interior in Victoria’s Yarra Valley, Molecule’s brief was to co-locate a new cellar door for the acclaimed Levantine Hill wine brand and a signature restaurant for chef Teage Ezard within a new building designed by Fender Katsalidis Architects.

The interior draws inspiration from the surrounding landscape, with a repetitive tectonic form of shifting brass panels and undulating fabric banding in the banquette; to create warmth within the large, industrial volume, our response combines tactile, self-finishing materials including black steel, raw timber and aniline leather with screen-printed linens and teal-coloured panelling. Airy, cubic joinery elements effectively preserve views through the space while defining the tasting and dining zones.
