Pickett’s Deli & Rotisserie, Melbourne
Restaurant / Australia / HBA Hong Kong / Completed in 2016
HBA created an inspiring dining experience for renowned Chef Scott Pickett and his latest venture – Pickett’s Deli & Rotisserie – a rotisserie and charcuterie station and communal space that invites guests into a familiar, home-like dining experience. Accommodating up to 36 diners, the marble-topped charcuterie counter is lined with stools, providing guests with front row seats to the show-stopping kitchen experience.
HBA designers developed a contemporary deli gourmet rotisserie that juxtaposes a modern-day lifestyle and fine culinary experience against the historic backdrop of the Queen Victoria Market. Creating a captivating, moody atmosphere, HBA designed a dark, masculine scheme accompanied by towering display shelves and 80-year-old reclaimed Tasmanian Oak floors that pay homage to the restaurant’s historic market location. The aged heritage substrate of the building, display shelves and bespoke lighting pendant harmoniously blended the restaurant’s location with the vibrancy of the deli’s modern concept.
