The Carrington Motel & Restaurant

Shepparton, VIC.

Shepparton is an important regional city in Victoria and The Carrington is an important ‘destination venue’ for dining and accommodation.

The brief to Bate Design was to invigorate its spaces and broaden its appeal.

Our design introduced casual dining alongside the formal restaurant and with a contemporary feel has successfully attracted a broader range of patrons, enabling the property to trade from breakfast through to dinner.

With a limited budget the design retained some fittings but with a complete refurbishment of the back bar, added fresh food storage areas, glassware and wine displays.

The casual dining area employs contemporary fittings and furnishings, simple materials, natural light and our design introduced locally crafted furniture, decorative light fittings and ornate ironwork. The design transformation has enabled the Carrington to be busier than ever.
