AIRSIDE Deli & Café

Archerfield Airport is located on the southside of Brisbane and services the private air travel sector, flight schools, logistics and emergency response aircraft. A previously thriving café on site had been non-operational for some time and the client wanted to refresh and refit the internal and external spaces.

The Archerfield Airport Corporation (AAC) engaged Disko Designs to redesign and specify new finishes, furniture and fittings for the front-of-house area and external dining. The new design needed to pay tribute to the significant history of the Airport and the 1930’s building it sits within whilst offering a contemporary and fresh feel to customers.

A fresh new take on casual dining...


Upon assessment of the existing floor plan and historical usage, it was proposed that the primary entrance be moved to allow for a better flow of patrons and to free up space for additional seating. The new layout created three distinct dining areas internally meeting the needs of single diners, small groups and larger groups alike.

New commercial-grade flooring and furniture were specified to breathe new life into this 90-year-old building. The original VJ wall panelling and ceiling details were highlighted and repeated throughout with fresh and friendly green hues. All new commercial catering appliances and counters were specified including custom joinery for the feature counter clad in pink tile and the self-service still and sparkling water station. 

Lighting and wall treatments create a contemporary yet intimate feeling and include concealed LED uplighting, adjustable gimble lighting and a feature aeronautical wallpaper behind the service counter.
