Part of the refurbishment of The Old Colonial Inn in Melbourne’s Brunswick is the introduction of Ichi Ni Nana restaurant. The 5-level culinary destination incorporates a range of dining zones, from street side hawker through to rooftop bar. The site has been painstakingly restored over three years, and features hand crafted furniture, and ornate, hand painted ceilings. Offering a classic izakaya menu, the Ichi Ni Nana restaurant inhabits two whole floors of the heritage building, including the basement and original garden courtyard.

To enhance the Ichi Ni Nana dining experience, and create a unique vista between bar and restaurant, owners Vince Sofo and Paul Adamo engaged Libart Australia to design and implement an impressive, sweeping retractable glass roof. The specialised custom roof covers the courtyard; allowing light to flood into the space, while creating a charming indoor-outdoor feel for diners. The roof’s glass has been acoustically engineered to reduce noise to the surrounding Melbourne streets, offers insulation and heat protection, and features a self-cleaning coating to ensure the glass stays clear while exposed to the elements.
