The combination of recycled brick, recycled hardwood and LED backlit signage gives Lone Star Rib House, located at Westfield North Lakes in Queensland, a certain street appeal. You'd be forgiven for thinking that the signage detailing of the Lone Star Rib House name and rodeo rider was hand-painted when in actual fact it has been spray painted using a stencil. Black powder-coated stainless steel bi-fold doors and windows have been installed at both street and shopping centre accesses and lead through the restaurant giving a flow on effect. A mix of industrial pendant lights and soft contemporary lighting highlight custom made compact laminate timber look booth seating, black laminate substrate planter boxes with artificial greenery and immense vinyl printed graphics. Vinyl plank flooring has been installed to sustain high impact traffic whilst maintaining visual appeal. Corrugated iron cladding in a rust finished paint and a host station consisting of polished timber tops with timber look laminate counter fronts and a recycled timber bar with live edge tops complete the inside of this restaurant. A fully functional commercial kitchen hides out back whilst underneath the alfresco style awning with a powder-coated finish, white DJ panelling to the ceiling and festoon lighting highlight the outdoor dining area furnished with custom booth seating manufactured from recycled timber surrounded by custom built brick planter boxes with timber capping.
