A narrow laneway of arabesque silhouettes and terracotta hues, Lillah embraces Middle Eastern fusion in an ancient inspired interior. Matched with warm lighting and a humble dining experience, the interior is paired back and subliminally traditional yet contemporaneously modern.


The space design celebrates not just one culture from the region but is informed by many different motifs throughout the Middle East and even extending to North Africa. The central dining area for example was inspired by the lead designer’s travels around Morocco. The skylight mimics an open courtyard with high walls, ivy covered arabesque forms and terracotta hues often seen in traditional Moroccan houses or ‘Riads’. The colour palette was inspired by explorations into Old Jeddah in the heart of Saudi Arabia. Mashrabiya screens were created out of woven brass and the flooring was buffed to reveal a honed concrete finish. In order to build a space that felt like it had seen years of history we even had the white gloss tiles on the front of the bar purposely cracked and filled with terracotta grout to mimic a space that had seen time.
