On the 13th
of December, Concrete Playground announced the winners to recognise the best arrivals on Brisbane’s food and entertainment scene in 2018.
This year Sekisui House was honoured to take out the People’s Choice in the ‘Best New Space’ category for The Garden Pantry located in the growing West Village
While the project is still in development, it has held everything from ice cream festivals to weekend markets since it was approved in 2016. And, as of October, the $800 million project is now home to The Garden Pantry and The Common. The former is a casual dining precinct featuring multiple eateries, plus indoor and outdoor seating, while the latter is a 24-hour public space brimming with grass, trees, plants, a water installation and a field of light. In short, the inner-city development has gained a heap of new dining options and a lush place to hang out. Unsurprisingly, in terms of decor, the new spaces play up the garden theme — both in The Garden Pantry space, which is decked out tropical-style, and in The Commons' greenery-filled garden area. Later this year, West Village will open Factory Lane, and add a new arts and events studio called The Bromley Room #2.
