Sydney interior design ladies deliver the sexiest fish and chip shop in Aus

Do you remember my interview with the impressive three ladies behind Sydney-based interior design and architecture company TomMarkHenry earlier this year? Well, Jade Nottage, Cushla McFadden and Chloe Matters haven’t stopped – they’ve just completed their latest project, and the result is the most sophisticated fish shop in Australia.

The renovated ‘Bondi Best‘ in located on Hall Street in the chic Bondi, NSW, and throws all connotations of our regular fish n’ chipperies well and truly overboard.

Bondi Best was a recognised brand prior to the Hall St venture and the market-fresh, quality food had to be reflected in the quality of the interior fit out. Taking cues from its Bondi Beach location but staying away from design elements characteristic of a traditional fish shop, Bondi’s Best offers a new take on this iconic Australian institution.

An intimate experience has been created with lowered rope ceiling and ambient tonal explorations of blues and grey, accented with brass and timber. Alongside these sits silver Travertine clad counters with fine brass trim, indicative of the distinctive fusion between the natural, artistic elements and the very crisp and clean. The unique split-use floor plan comprising both fresh seafood and dining was the inspiration for the feature fish locker wall.  Acting as both form and function, the display windows house large fresh fish but are also a visual connection between the takeaway and dining.

The dreamers and do-ers behind the architecture and interior design firm, Jade, Cushla and Chloe, say that it’s one of their favourite projects yet in the hospitality industry.

 “It’s a tonal exploration of blues that emulate a sophisticated seafood restaurant with hints of shapes and textures that speak to the sea without being your average seafood joint”, said Cushla.
