Longhorn Smokehouse – Wrest Point, Hobart

The Longhorn is a South American style smokehouse restaurant located at Wrest Point casino in Hobart. The architect’s intention was to create a family friendly signature restaurant for the Casino. A palette of timber, aged leather, metal studs, butchers block and collected antique objects create a rustic yet sophisticated atmosphere. This space has been skilfully embellished with antique banding irons gathered by the client from all over the world.

As for the lighting, through every step of the design, collaboration between the architect and LightStudio MG is evident. The lighting is considered, well integrated and complements the restaurant’s interiors. The brief was understood resulting in cosy and inviting environment for diners.
