As the first of a number of planned restaurants, The Burger Shed in Sydney, is part of a down to earth materials, design, and ingredients movement. Designed by Mima Design, Sydney, The Burger Shed takes things back to basics in a good old fashioned way. Mima Director Mark McConnell explains.
Situated within the wealthy northern Sydney suburb of Mosman, The Burger Shed name and concept developed at MIMA stemmed from the ‘Shed’ being a very recognisable Australian environment, a place where great things are hand-crafted, with a strong connection to the Australian agricultural landscape and hence, the food producers that supply the core ingredients to The Burger Shed.
The graphics are simple, stripped back and to the point. For the interior, MIMA explored a raw pallet of materials, getting back-to-basics, with bare brick walls, distressed weatherboards, concrete flooring, plywood joinery, industrial lighting and the ‘must-have’ shed ladder hung from the ceiling.
Our aim was to create an inviting restaurant that expressed quality and affordability, and appealed to the wider population looking for local quality product, great service, unique environment and sensible prices.
