HUGOS MANLY MANLY
Hugos Restaurant and Bar is situated on the western edge of the iconic Manly Wharf. This project sees the exciting juxtaposition of the Hugos brand with the local Manly environment. The contemporary veranda, the timber ceiling and prominence of heritage timber cladding are reminiscent of a traditional Australian beach house.
The restaurant takes advantage of expansive water views while maintaining an intimacy with Manly locals and everyday ferry commuters.
Typical of light and open timber wharves, internal and external boundaries are blurred. Recycled Australian timbers are featured in walls, floors, ceilings, bar surfaces and designed furnishings throughout.
The space is ordered by a logical hierarchy that extends from the long inviting bar area out through the dining spaces to the verandah and beyond to the views. The verandah enjoys the afternoon sun and the beautiful sunset over North Harbour through the use of concealed staining and windbreaks that provide protection from adverse weather conditions.
