Tora Eatery is an Asian-Inspired Eatery, based in Windsor, Victoria, Australia.


Combining an existing space (circa early 1900’s), together with inspirations from Asian architecture & design, our aim was to harmoniously fuse the old & new, to create a new space that perfectly complemented the Asian fusion food on offer.


We retained the original façade, and window mouldings, coating all existing elements with a fresh black paint.  The existing banquette was retained, and re-upholstered with a back rest added.  The beautiful and original timber ceiling was retained but painted in black.


Lighting was an important element of the design, so we created subtle illumination – back lighting the banquette backrest and bar shelving - perfect for a moody evening dining ambience, together with new track lighting along the ceiling.


The walls were treated with a textured plaster finish – super matt, with varied grey tones throughout.


The height of the main entrance and bar area is accentuated with linear strips of timber that wrap the walls and ceiling, encompassing the space – directly drawing inspiration from Asian design elements and subtly link the interior with the food offering, without being obvious or cliched. 


The custom-designed bar takes pride of place along the length of the front dining room, again resonating and linking the timber elements that wrap the ceiling.
