1830 Restaurant & Bar, Port Arthur Visitor Centre.

JAWS Interiors latest restaurant fit-out in collaboration with Rosevear Stephenson Architects is now open!

The new restaurant titled 1830 is located in the recently redeveloped Port Arthur Visitor Centre. With sweeping views of the Penitentiary, gardens and grounds, the 1830 restaurant is a perfect place to enjoy drink after exploring the site.

JAWS worked closely with Rosevear Stephenson Architects to Redevelop the Port Arthur Visitor Centre due to increased visitor numbers creating a demand for circulation improvements and an internal fit-out.

This sensitive yet confident redevelopment offers panoramic views, always encouraging visitors to look beyond, through the trees out to Port Arthur. From the cafeteria and restaurant down to the staff quarters, the view out to the site is always at the foreground of the design.

The furniture takes its lead from the minimal architecture with simple seating and locally made Tasmanian oak tables.
A dark and intimate restaurant steps up toward a moody luxurious dining room closed in from the Visitor Centre with a brass mesh curtain.

The end result is a minimal and sophisticated Visitor Centre that can comfortably cater for the large crowds visiting the convict site.
