About the project

Celebrated in the press as “the Sunshine Coast's first real-deal, authentic Vietnamese restaurant”, Nguyen Brothers opened its doors in late 2017. With two popular Sydney restaurants already in their portfolio, the owners have opened a new destination with creative, inspiring food – and a fit-out to match.

Part of a hospitality surge on Queensalnd's thriving "Sunny Coast", the open eating space needed to achieve just the right balance of sophisticated simplicity with an inviting and laid-back vibe. A beautiful, creative ceiling in light, natural Hemlock was the perfect ingredient.

The Austratus Difference

The Austratus fin profile made the ceiling a statement piece for Nguyen Brothers – streamlined quality with a warm timber welcome. With contemporary yet timeless looks, the timber ceiling contrasts beautifully with a long turquoise-coloured booth and complements parquetry features and timber tables and stools. With its acoustic absorption benefits, it’s the ideal choice for a noisy eating space, as well as being cost-effective, quick and easy to install – providing real value-for-money for this new player in a highly competitive industry.

Product Spotlight

The Austratus Fin Profile offers extra depth and dimension. The classic square shape adds dynamic shadows to any space and allows creative flair to take shape in a truly unique way. Curved or straight, it creates interest, draws the eye and has a standout impact. Hemlock timber offers a naturally pale, attractive look and flexible applications. And of course, natural timber is a high performer when it comes to acoustic absorption – perfect for busy, vibrant, high-traffic spaces.

Testimonial from Owner:

"We are very happy with Austratus, a recommendation from our builder. It was easy to install and easy to adjust – and it adds an excellent look to the overall design of the restaurant."
