DesignFreo On Location 14: Rezen / Vin Populi

24 June 2024
What are the ingredients for great hospitality design?

A popular dining venue in Fremantle, Vin Populi has quickly infused new energy into the West End since opening in early 2023, attracting both locals and visitors with its restrained interior, great service and delicious food. 

East Fremantle-based architects Rezen transformed the tired shell of the Roma, a beloved Fremantle institution, into the pacy restaurant you see today. The new space nods to its history whilst creating a contemporary Italian dining experience. 

So what are the ingredients for great hospitality design? Find out at DesignFreo’s first hospitality ‘On Location’ conversation at Vin Populi on Friday 19 July. Enjoy a glass of wine in Vin Populi’s new bar space whilst listening to discussions with designers Rhys and Zenifa Bowring, along with restaurant owners Emma Ferguson and Dan Morris.
