Sharing its space with Anther By Glasshouse, the space is beautifully designed to create the seaside dining experience through the creative touch of Homeworks Consultancy.
Whenever you think of oysters, what comes to your mind?
You would probably imagine yourself sitting by the seaside, enjoying the gentle breeze of a tropical beach surrounding you, while slowly slurping those fresh oysters.
“In the same way, the client would like to deliver a similar dining experience for the lovely customers of Angie’s Oyster Bar & Grill.”
The client requested to play with the beach's colour scheme (which consists of various colours such as soft blue, white, and terracotta) as it would create a more relaxed and enjoyable dining experience that helped customers escape from the hustle and bustle of the city.
“The idea was to have them feel as though they were on a breezy vacation, having a nice seafood meal by the blue ocean.”

Angie's Oyster Bar & Grill occupies the second floor unit of Tan Boon Liat building, which possesses a unique hexagonal shape with a pitched roof and high ceiling, creating an attractive symmetrical layout for the designer to play around with.
As the unit is located away from the ground level, the designer can create a "rooftop" alfresco dining area for the diners to look out and enjoy the outdoor scenery right from where they are seated.
The Outdoor Dining Area
Angie's Oyster Bar & Grill is mainly differentiated into two separate outdoor and indoor dining areas. Both areas emit slightly different atmospheres. However, the owners managed to work closely with the designers of Homeworks Consultancy to find balance in creating that welcoming beach-like alfresco ambience.
The overall materiality of the space is mainly textured with hollowed bricks, outdoor woven chairs paired with marble table tops, potted plants, palm trees, and some customized items made of rattan.
The rattan elements can be found from the custom-made rattan sofas and one of the space's highlights - the rattan fishnet-like ceiling feature. Both are fabricated by HW Craft which has greatly facilitated the completion of the project.
The Indoor Dining Area
Upon entering the indoor dining space, one is greeted with a unique yet welcoming classical French-inspired design style. A little touch of vintage photos in dark frames further creates an immersive environment for every customer.
Next, you will be greeted with the Centerpiece of the space. This beautifully sculpted installation not only acts as a display but brings life into an otherwise unseemly dull structural column of the space.
Such a splendid idea by the designers and well appreciated by customers as they relax within this inviting diner!
When designing the layout, the owners worked closely with the designers to segregate the interior and exterior without interrupting the flow of the space. The intriguing use of the terracotta bricks which were supplied by HW Craft has provided a contrast that carefully ties the areas together.
It is a must-go experience for Oyster lovers or if you are searching for a hidden treasure around the heritage of Tan Boon Liat Building!
We would also like to thank Homeworks Consultancy for providing the photos of this unique yet welcoming project.
