From the outset, the owners of Opa Greek Meze Bar wanted to feature copper throughout their venue.
“In order to not break the bank,” interior designer Matt Woods chose to mix the material into the restaurant’s warm, earthy palette as a highlight element. The resulting space is robust and textural, yet elegant with a strong emphasis on materiality. Two central walls were removed and re-engineered to improve the building’s interior envelope.
A masterful selection of materials achieve the desired inviting, relaxing ambiance; exposed walls and clay tiles are a point of contrast against the softness of neighbouring FSCcertified E0 plywood and reclaimed blackbutt timbers. And in a nod to the Hellenic spirit that defines the place, the “requisite” Greek arch is decorated with distinctive encaustic cement tiles.
