Republic Pi

Republic Pi is a South Hill restaurant space that evokes a sense of timeless authenticity. Drawing inspiration from ancient Japanese craftsmanship, we employed the Shou Sugi Ban method to infuse every natural wood finish with a rich depth of character and texture. As you enter, the aged facade whispers tales of bygone eras, hinting at a history steeped in tradition and craftsmanship. The illusion that the restaurant may have been built around the wood stone oven is carefully curated, with Ball Construction achieving the weathered, rustic appearance through the application of crafted acid wash.

But it’s not just the walls that tell a story—oversized canvases adorned with black and white photography pay homage to the processes employed by Ball Construction, each frame a respectful nod to the craftsmanship and artistry that brought this unique space to life. In every detail, from the charred wood finishes to the carefully curated decor, the essence of tradition and innovation intertwine, creating a dining experience that is as unforgettable as it is extraordinary.
