Aesop - Rundle Street

The newly designed Aesop Rundle Street store takes full advantage of the generous proportions of the building and heightens a sense of openness through white walls adorned simply with product shelves crafted from solid timber and blackened steel rods.

Blonde Tasmanian Oak is employed in abundance, wrapping the sensuous forms of three tablet-shaped counters that sit on parquetry flooring. Several raw side tables crafted from imperfectly stacked concrete disks, sit in contrast to the refined interiors throughout the space. In contrast to the neutral tones in the space, each counter is inlaid with antique green marble to form luxurious and functional bench tops in celebration of the Victorian heritage of the host building. This vivid hue is complemented by ferns that spill out of bespoke planters, referencing the store’s locale in the east end.

White Rabbit

Located in the west end of Adelaide, the ‘White Rabbit’ nightclub plays on the ‘Alice in Wonderland’ notion of chasing the white rabbit; leading yourself into a mind altering environment, which, on entry you will quickly find out your eyes will be playing games on you! White Rabbit offers a progressive and whimsical material palette and experience starting from the entry all the way to the toilets. Either it is drinking champagne in the ‘Tea Garden Lounge’ or the ‘VIP apartment suite', the venue was all based on the foundation of good times and good house music.

White Suede

Following her great wholesale fashion success in Europe and the United States, this project was to create a fashion flagship store on Melbourne’s Chapel Street that reflects both the label ‘White Suede’ and owner/designer Jacqui Demkiw with her elegant-eclectic approach to fabrics, cuts and layering. A feminine palette was put together using a light space of white paint, recycled Australian hardwood timber to the flooring & corridor ceiling; and a darker palette for the ‘boudoir’ located to the rear of the store displaying her lingerie range, using dark carpets, dark materials, and mood lighting. Local artist ‘Smalltown’ was commissioned to fabricate the macramé hanging pieces throughout to accent White Suede’s playful vintage fabrics patterns & seasonal colour.

CIBO Espresso

CIBO Espresso’s ‘new look’ flagship store on Hindly Street, Adelaide. What was a boring old bank’s side staff entrance and thoroughfare has now been turned into a hustling slice of little Italy activating pedestrian life in a European way.

L.A.X.

The project brief was to rebrand the Adelaide fashion institute and reposition them in the market with a head turning new store. We wanted to make a space that was ‘design neutral’ allowing the constantly changing fashion apparel to read well in the space while giving the shoppers an experience. The faceted, geometric form was designed to grow, collapse, fold and twist its way from the front window to the back of the store, and undulate into a central change room and denim display. We wanted to make a saturated shopping experience for the LAX customers all while trying to keep an understated design to the store.

- More

Blue Chilli Jewellery

The brief was to refit the existing stirling silver store and to launch the new look Blue Chilli Jewellery into the market with fresh energy, bespoke jewellery & white gold.

- More

CJB Residence

This house was a new build for a young family with two kids. The brief was to create a long-term family home for clients who loves to entertain their big extended family, all while enjoying their admiration for 1950’s architecture and furniture. The space was driven both from day and night use, adult entertaining areas as well as play rooms for the kids. The palette was to be simple, warm, timeless and mid-century inspired but with modernist appeal. We were able to use stone walls and glazed walls to help carry through the 1950’s ideal of architecture. Honed tiled floors, honed marble benchtops and plush wool carpet were the main finishes. Simple detailing and soft lighting were used to create a hierarchy from principle bedrooms, powder rooms and bathrooms.

- More

TMK Residence

The project brief was to create a timeless home that could last the test of time for at least twenty years. The challenge for us was to renovate the existing red brick, 70’s built house with a very heavy palette and arches at every opening. To create the client’s request for a timeless home, we proposed a monochromatic palette; playing with black and white in the main living area and a white pool side palette for the ground floor.

- More

The Village Baker

The fundamentals of ‘the village baker’ store design was to embrace a European style bakery that has smaller distance between tables and benches to feel cosy at the same time. The front was divided with vertical columns that were clad with fluted timber to break up the mall from the store, but still allowing patron to sit and watch mall traffic

- More

The Bath Hotel

The brief was to create a lighter feel for The Bath Hotel giving patrons and locals new interest in the hotel while lifting the dining and bar experience without being too pretentious. The new layout defined the lounge, bar and dining areas while still allowing open site across the venue. The material palette maintained some raw finishes while introducing soft greys, whites and deep blues. All areas were tied together with a playful range of ceramics and found objects.

- More

Terrace Towers

The brief for existing 12 story 1800’s building called ‘Terrace Towers’ was to renovate the existing public spaces and ground floor foyer that had poorly been renovated (Circa 1980) and to give the building a new fresh timeless look including lift upgrades to become disabled compliant. The building houses the state ministers and has thousands of people go through the foyer a day. The foyer design was about creating a sophisticated minimal space that had a residential undertone giving the foyer a sense of calm and direction that you immediately feel on entry.

- More

Eden

The brief was to create a bar and restaurant that houses local wines and produce; and to be the new local for the growing residential living at Glenelg marina.

Nordburger

‘Nordburger' is the latest project by Genesin Studio in collaboration with Peter Jay Deering, creating Adelaide’s newest food hub located on The Parade, Norwood. The approach was to create a store that had holistic branding throughout and not just an interiors with a logo. The driving design concept behind Nordburger was about creating a comfortable, affordable burger and hotdog store that didn’t look like a diner. This is one of those ideas that needs to be just right to make a warm and understated space become effortless.

The newly designed Aesop Rundle Street store takes full advantage of the generous proportions of the building and heightens a sense of openness through white walls adorned simply with product shelves crafted from solid timber and blackened steel rods.

Blonde Tasmanian Oak is employed in abundance, wrapping the sensuous forms of three tablet-shaped counters that sit on parquetry flooring. Several raw side tables crafted from imperfectly stacked concrete disks, sit in contrast to the refined interiors throughout the space. In contrast to the neutral tones in the space, each counter is inlaid with antique green marble to form luxurious and functional bench tops in celebration of the Victorian heritage of the host building. This vivid hue is complemented by ferns that spill out of bespoke planters, referencing the store’s locale in the east end.

White Rabbit

Located in the west end of Adelaide, the ‘White Rabbit’ nightclub plays on the ‘Alice in Wonderland’ notion of chasing the white rabbit; leading yourself into a mind altering environment, which, on entry you will quickly find out your eyes will be playing games on you! White Rabbit offers a progressive and whimsical material palette and experience starting from the entry all the way to the toilets. Either it is drinking champagne in the ‘Tea Garden Lounge’ or the ‘VIP apartment suite', the venue was all based on the foundation of good times and good house music.

White Suede

Following her great wholesale fashion success in Europe and the United States, this project was to create a fashion flagship store on Melbourne’s Chapel Street that reflects both the label ‘White Suede’ and owner/designer Jacqui Demkiw with her elegant-eclectic approach to fabrics, cuts and layering. A feminine palette was put together using a light space of white paint, recycled Australian hardwood timber to the flooring & corridor ceiling; and a darker palette for the ‘boudoir’ located to the rear of the store displaying her lingerie range, using dark carpets, dark materials, and mood lighting. Local artist ‘Smalltown’ was commissioned to fabricate the macramé hanging pieces throughout to accent White Suede’s playful vintage fabrics patterns & seasonal colour.

L.A.X.

The project brief was to rebrand the Adelaide fashion institute and reposition them in the market with a head turning new store. We wanted to make a space that was ‘design neutral’ allowing the constantly changing fashion apparel to read well in the space while giving the shoppers an experience. The faceted, geometric form was designed to grow, collapse, fold and twist its way from the front window to the back of the store, and undulate into a central change room and denim display. We wanted to make a saturated shopping experience for the LAX customers all while trying to keep an understated design to the store.

The client didn’t want the store to look expensive or pretentious as it stocks street clothing as well as living accessories. The ply-on-ply palette made a perfect canvas for ever-changing apparel and merchandise; either it be bags, heels, kicks or mannequins. Denim being the most stocked item needed its own glory all while being near staff so sizing and change room fitting became easy, and customer staff connection is generated.

Blue Chilli Jewellery

The brief was to refit the existing stirling silver store and to launch the new look Blue Chilli Jewellery into the market with fresh energy, bespoke jewellery & white gold.

The idea of the store design was simply like the ‘white-on-white’ store was dipped in a pool of blue paint, striking a line across the entire store that made everything blue. This was a way of acknowledging the blue in the name but without compromising the jewellery as colour throw-off can happen and alter looks of stones and metal.

CJB Residence

This house was a new build for a young family with two kids. The brief was to create a long-term family home for clients who loves to entertain their big extended family, all while enjoying their admiration for 1950’s architecture and furniture. The space was driven both from day and night use, adult entertaining areas as well as play rooms for the kids. The palette was to be simple, warm, timeless and mid-century inspired but with modernist appeal. We were able to use stone walls and glazed walls to help carry through the 1950’s ideal of architecture. Honed tiled floors, honed marble benchtops and plush wool carpet were the main finishes. Simple detailing and soft lighting were used to create a hierarchy from principle bedrooms, powder rooms and bathrooms.

TMK Residence

The project brief was to create a timeless home that could last the test of time for at least twenty years. The challenge for us was to renovate the existing red brick, 70’s built house with a very heavy palette and arches at every opening. To create the client’s request for a timeless home, we proposed a monochromatic palette; playing with black and white in the main living area and a white pool side palette for the ground floor.

The Village Baker

The fundamentals of ‘the village baker’ store design was to embrace a European style bakery that has smaller distance between tables and benches to feel cosy at the same time. The front was divided with vertical columns that were clad with fluted timber to break up the mall from the store, but still allowing patron to sit and watch mall traffic

The Bath Hotel

The brief was to create a lighter feel for The Bath Hotel giving patrons and locals new interest in the hotel while lifting the dining and bar experience without being too pretentious. The new layout defined the lounge, bar and dining areas while still allowing open site across the venue. The material palette maintained some raw finishes while introducing soft greys, whites and deep blues. All areas were tied together with a playful range of ceramics and found objects.

Terrace Towers

The brief for existing 12 story 1800’s building called ‘Terrace Towers’ was to renovate the existing public spaces and ground floor foyer that had poorly been renovated (Circa 1980) and to give the building a new fresh timeless look including lift upgrades to become disabled compliant. The building houses the state ministers and has thousands of people go through the foyer a day. The foyer design was about creating a sophisticated minimal space that had a residential undertone giving the foyer a sense of calm and direction that you immediately feel on entry.

Eden

The brief was to create a bar and restaurant that houses local wines and produce; and to be the new local for the growing residential living at Glenelg marina.

The timeless palette is midcentury inspired and offers patterned facades, walls and custom furniture. Designing a seasonal location was difficult as it needs to cater for the harsh summer sun and heat as well as the strong gusty cold winds. We designed a patterned facade to offer dappled light into the venue while still offering views to dining patrons. At night the patterned facade glows from within the restaurant and acts as a beacon at night luring pedestrian business. The entry area offers short orders on casual banquettes for coffee and breakfast where patrons can read newspaper and have a lazy start to the day. There is also a lounge area for private functions and a dining area with a wine mixing room. Both terrace areas add onto the interior with a casual seating off the bar and lounge, and a dining terrace for dining patrons. All the custom furniture and lighting offers a unique space that is harmonious but subtly transforms from casual to formal dining with hero tables for large groups.

Nordburger

‘Nordburger' is the latest project by Genesin Studio in collaboration with Peter Jay Deering, creating Adelaide’s newest food hub located on The Parade, Norwood. The approach was to create a store that had holistic branding throughout and not just an interiors with a logo. The driving design concept behind Nordburger was about creating a comfortable, affordable burger and hotdog store that didn’t look like a diner. This is one of those ideas that needs to be just right to make a warm and understated space become effortless.
