"The overall look is more ship based than yacht based," Goss says. "There are references to cruise ships in the curved bar and kitchen servery, which have radiused corners and rivets. And the fireplace, encased in steel plate, resembles a furnace."
The cruise ship analogy is also evident on the harbour deck, which steps down from the interior.
"There is a big change in level between inside and out more than a metre," says the designer. "We needed to mitigate this to ensure the spaces would flow. Even though the deck is not very wide, there was enough space to create terraced seating with squabs and cushions, plus a row of smaller tables right along the edge.
"Because the deck is so much lower, we find people sitting outside are almost hidden from view, so they don't block the sightlines out to the water."
Goss says it was essential to break up the eatery into zones, to provide a mix of intimate and open spaces. Different areas cater to different needs. There are colourful low stools on the deck, bar stools and leaners inside and out, small and large tables, and the American-style kitchen servery where diners can eat on the run.
"There is literally something for everyone, and with so many seating areas, it's possible to follow the sun throughout the day."
