Chiara is a 150 seat Italian restaurant and bar with separate wine cellar tasting room for 16. It is contained within the ground floor of the lantern building, which is part of the Collins Square development at docklands in Melbourne. Our brief for the project was to create an approachable restaurant with a sophisticated corporate ambience on the ground floor level. the first floor level overlooking the heritage listed goods shed south houses a state-of-the-art production and catering kitchen that caters to the collins square blue chip clients and the greater Melbourne community. The restaurant features classic bentwood chairs, marble tables and a beautiful herringbone American oak floor and has been featured in Habitus, wallpaper* and broadsheet to name a few.
