Aru Restaurant - IDEA 2023

Aru Restaurant

Shortlist – 2022

Kerstin Thompson Architects with Figureground Architecture


Fire is at the heart of Aru’s cuisine; the design celebrates the central hearth. Colours are earthy and warm in line with themes of heat and spice. A colour gradient combined with level changes defines dining areas and holds these areas together. They are grounded in bespoke bricks, reminiscent of the hearth.
