C’est Bon by JDA Co.


◄ JDA Co. is deftly deploying design to reinvigora­te the Stanley Street precinct of Brisbane’s Woolloonga­bba. Originally known as “Shop Row” and built in the early 1900s, the strip is now home to French restaurant C’est Bon, as well as a rooftop bar, JDA Co.’s studio and another office.

Inside C’est Bon, the original tongueand-groove timber ceilings and sandstone and brick walls were lovingly restored. The installati­on of an arched frame over the bar allowed JDA Co. to add lighting without compromisi­ng original materials. “I wanted to honour the precinct’s history yet enliven the strip in a way that introduces a new dynamism to the area,”says James Davidson of JDA Co.
