With a spacious new layout, Leadbelly’s brings a contemporary bar to the neighbourhood, bursting with character and quirky design elements. The design scheme, allowed for a stylistic fuse between industrial architectural features and foliage-inspired soft furnishings to create an “urban concrete jungle” aesthetic.

Particular design features included a structural reconfiguration of a previously dominating long corridor that ran the stretch of the building. Having halved this in size and moved the toilets, the restaurant space is a lot more generous and the corridor has become a key design feature. Structural timber slats imbedded with an industrial light feature, created an alluring illusion drawing the customers through to the otherwise of the bar, a previously un-used space.
