Estelle by Scott Picket | Modern restaurant interior design
Estelle by Scott Picket, the famed Australian chef, is a 52-seat restaurant located next door to Pickett’s current establishment, Estelle Bistro, situated in the expanding food/bar precinct of High Street, Northcote. The design reflects a vibrant and contemporary space that projects timelessness as it enhances the dining and a high-end degustation experience. Restaurant interior design main focus is a centered show kitchen with bar stools, toward the back that features an overhead flue finished in mirrored black metal and glossy black wall tiles, which contrasts an array of high-end copper pots along the back shelf.
Interior designer Ilija Karlusic , HBA Asia Pacific president for HBA and responsible for the design of numerous Asian hotels and restaurants worked closely with local furniture designer Ben Sibley in designing the French oak tables, as well as the parquetry-style feature wall, beautifully articulated with black mild steel.
For the ultimate ski travel, visit the Swiss village of Gstaad, where celebrities and European royals touch down every winter for pleasures beyond the slopes. Alpina Gstaad, a six-story, 56-key hotel designed by HBA and Elizabeth Wampfler, a partner at Jaggi & Partner, had a collaboration with BRABBU Contract.
Warm reclaimed rustic timber forms the envelope to most of the spaces and there are many references to local customs and craft skills, from elaborately hand-painted ballroom doors in the manner of centuries-old farmers’ paintings to intricate patterning embroidered onto some of the armchairs. However, the overall line is sleek and the spaces, while accessorized with collections of photos and other paraphernalia, are uncluttered.
Il Lago dei Cigni Restaurant, St. Petersburg, Russia / Contemporary italian restaurant
The creators of Buddha Bar St. Petersburg built this new restaurant in St. Petersburg featuring Italian haute-cuisine. The centerpiece of the interior is devoted to “Il Lago dei Cigni” — Swan Lake” in Italian. HBA interior design created panoramic, floor-to-ceiling windows encircle the round footprint of the main dining area, framing the lakeside backdrop. An exquisite central column and chandelier together form the star of the room, a shimmering allusion to Russian fairy tales and the folklore around maypole dancing.
Beautiful natural materials add to the sense of luxury. Wide plank teak floors are rustic yet refined, selenite cladding appears again on the façades of the bar and cabinetry, and Italian-made chairs upholstered in rich cognac leather and truffle toned herringbone wool all bring a connection to the natural world. Modern renditions of traditional Russian fabric motifs usher in subtle splashes of softness. Above the bar, lighting crafted from hand-blown Czech glass casts a warm glimmer.
Cepe restaurant / luxury italian cuisine
China’s legendary capital and second largest city, Ritz Carlton opened at 2008 a 5-star luxury hotel featuring interior design by HBA / Hirsch Bedner Associates. Inside this luxury hotel, there’s this higher quality Italian restaurant, Cèpè, with black lacquered open shelves displaying exquisite Chinese porcelain act as room dividers to create a memorable setting for northern Italian cuisine.
The 5425 square foot ballroom, the focal point of 10667 square feet of meeting space, displays 35 Murano blown glass peony flower shaped chandeliers and Liu Li colored glass inlays in ceiling panels as a glamorous backdrop for events.
Grand Hyatt Shenyang
HBA molded ancient culture with vibrant modernity in the styling of Grand Hyatt Shenyang, the first Hyatt-branded hotel in Northeast China. The hotel features nine restaurants, 353 luxurious rooms, and suites, which are some of the most spacious guestrooms in the city. HBA’s design vision was distinctly rooted in Shenyang, reflecting its people, history, and prominence as an international hub of commerce.
