Sweet Sour Salt is a well established restaurant in Orange with a dedicated following. Source Architects was approached in 2017 to complete the fitout of their new Anson Street premises which sought to increase the restaurant capacity and to offer a wider menu. The existing building previously housed a number of restaurants but the layout needed a signficant facelift and some reconfiguration to allow better seating arrangement and a new bar at the entry. Sweet Sour Salt serves modern Asian cuisine and this influenced the bar and seating area design with use of timber battens for overhead joinery and the vibrant shade of blues used to colour the space. The ceiling and lighting design used Acapulco chairs upside down to the resemble asian parasols or Chinese conical hats. Large graphics line which the walls and banquette seating make for a lively, fun and yet intimate space for the diners.
