Planet Hollywood

The clients brief demanded an environment consistent with the international restaurant chain’s theme worldwide but with an individual statement emphasising its own strong identity in Auckland City. Walker Director worked with New York architects in their offices. The two offices had an excellent architect to architect relationship through the full documentation stage.

The basis of the concept is to transport the visitor to different worlds created by a multitude of various theme rooms or spaces, one entirely different from the next and separated by transitional zones. Film memorabilia is carefully selected and placed to reinforce the theme, together with AV display, sounds, colour(background) and light. On arrival at the main reception area, one can see over the whole restaurant. The various eating rooms are opened up progressively so that patrons always have a degree of intimacy. The multitude of visual displays, both static and digital, draw one around the restaurant due to ‘glimpses’ available from neighbouring rooms.
