We loved every second of being out of our comfort zone with this ah-mazing job. It was our first shopfit and our clients were so incredibly trusting and really allowed us to relax and find a great rhythm. There were many obstacles as with any job on an existing building, and many design revisions along the way! The learning curve of dealing with so many trades who said some of our ideas weren’t possible was frustrating to say the least, until we found ‘Made Again Interior’. They turned all of our ideas into reality and we truly can’t thank them enough.

This space consists of an amazing copper bar top, custom concrete wall panels, herringbone feature tiled bar face, beautiful worn brickwork ( a labour of love), shelving made from industrial piping, custom furniture made from recycled timber, rope lighting, lime wash timber floors, incredible timber feature beams, suspended concrete signage, a recycled timber walkway and much more. Most elements/textures were chosen as they weather beautifully with age and add to the character of this beautiful building.

We couldn’t have done it without the help of so many other amazing local suppliers >

Made Again Interior, The Concrete Co, Duckfat, The Tile People, Pop up Plants, Inform Upholstery, Timberzoo and many more (just ask when your in store)

With props from so many amazing places> Kyo, The Mill Markets, Bizarre, Geelong Vintage Market, Ponyrider, Freedom, Frankie say Relax, Pots by Charlou, Who Loves That, The Super Cool, Shelter 7, Lunar Concept & Gallery and many many more.

Bottles and Barrels is located at 132 Aberdeen St, Geelong West, VIC 

They have an amazing selection of beer, cider and wines with tastings every friday. Their service is some of the best we have encountered, and as wine drinkers ( who admittedly don’t know as much about wine as we would like ), their product knowledge is second to none. The many varieties of wines they have helped us choose have all been incredible! We’ll definitely be going back whenever we need more.

We look forward to the next stage of this space, stay tuned for many more exciting things to come from these guys.
