Four Pillars Laboratory by YSG

Four Pillars Laboratory in Surry Hills, Sydney, is the flagship store and bar of Four Pillars, the 2019 International Gin Producer of the Year. Inspired by a ripe juniper berry, the bar is blue concrete with warm timber and copper accents, with lighting to accentuate the materials and mood.

Four Pillars Laboratory, designed by YSG, distils the essence of Four Pillars: attention to detail, passion for the craft and love of hospitality. Comprising Eileen’s Bar, the Gin Lab and retail store, it is robust and tactile interior with the gin takes centrestage.

Evoking the clandestine feel of a 1920s speakeasy, Eileen’s Bar and the Gin Lab are accessed via a separate side entrance where four Mini Radi Inground Uplights are cast into the concrete step.

The interior of the bar and lab is dark and moody, with a colour palette inspired by a ripe juniper berry. A blue-concrete bar in the centre allows every visitor to have a front-row view, with dark-blue furniture set around the room against blackened walls. The walls, seating and joinery recede into the darkness, except for the Ribbon LED edge lighting that wraps around the room, enhancing the moodiness of the space and illuminating the plaster and brick textures. Wirelessly controlled by our DALI Automation System, the light levels and ambience can be easily adjusted.

Discreet, minimalist lighting also enhances the interior with the Ago LED downlight and Profilo 1616 pendan
