Previously the iconic Bergie’s fish cafe located in Thirroul, NSW, the cafe under new owners, has had a major upgrade. Let us introduce to you: South Sailor, with its front yard ocean views and escarpment backdrop. This restaurant offers customers a contemporary dining experience with a strong focus on fresh seafood. South Sailor provides both dine-in and takeaway options.

Our brief was to transform the interior into a modernised version of the typical fish and chip shop. We approached this through gaining inspiration from the coastal location and local atmosphere.

Our design was the starting point for the rebranding of the business, with aspects of our design being replicated in the logo, menus and even the façade. The owners commissioned Kraken Kreative to create a mural for the front of the building. The mural consists of crashing waves, referencing the beach and also complementing our interior colour selections.

The new design features three zones: a bar, a waiting / casual seating area and a formal seating overlooking the sushi bar.
