The interior design for The Buffet Korean restaurant in Albany by Blacktree Architects and Designers comprises several chic industrial surfaces as well as the use of Resene Blackjack and Resene Black White in key areas.

A thriving restaurant not only has great food, the decor also plays a big part in repeat custom.

The brief to Blacktree Architects and Designers for The Buffet was to break with classic Korean decor and create instead an industrial, edgy feel.

The Buffet Korean restaurant in Albany presents a dark, moody atmosphere to its patrons with Resene paints playing a key part.

The design is set up so diners enter between two private dining rooms with the main buffet display straight ahead, clad in perforated red metal. Continuing the industrial accent, the restaurant's private rooms are black and the original concrete floors were retained. For warmth, macrocarpa was used as a partition wall.

And as part of the drama, the doors and ceilings in the restaurant are finished in two contrasting yet complementary Resene colours. Both are available in a range of paint finishes, including durable Resene Lustacryl for trims and joinery and Resene SpaceCote Flat for interior use, including wet areas.
