SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE BENNELONG RESTAURANT

2000-2001 | Hospitality | Sydney NSW | 1300m² | photo Paul Gosney

Working carefully with this iconic 1956 world heritage item, the lighting design was critical in creating a sensual ambience for Guillaume’s outstanding, five hat – awarded restaurant. We re-lit Utzon’s world heritage listed Opera House to dramatise the structure floating above an intimately lit restaurant below. An earth palette of fabrics and furniture grounds the restaurant, on which we placed theatre-set, designed objects including aboriginal painted lamps and poles, over-scaled vases and flower arrangements and joinery, to complete this stunning, operatic – dining experience.
