Saké Restaurant & Bar brings signature, contemporary Japanese flavours, sleek Luchetti Krelle design and al fresco dining with sweeping ocean views to the rooftop of Manly Wharf.
With a shimmering 2-tonne anthracite boulder guards the circular gateway of the private dining chambers running through its central axis. Each chamber is separated by woven fabric shoji screens that gracefully full the circular window framework when in operation.
The restaurant is divided into several unique spaces: the light-flooded main dining room with an abundance of window-side tables, an open kitchen featuring a huge robata grill and interactive sushi counter, a sophisticated bar area with seating, and a series of breathtaking private dining rooms.
LightCo assisted Luchetti Krelle with a bollard light suitable for the harsh weather conditions of being on the water, with full sun, wind and rain exposure present at all times. The light selected was the sought-after Logia Bollard Light by Il Fanale is part of a cylindrical shaped collection. It evokes suggestive atmospheres through a reinterpretation of the classic wall-mounted candle holders. Made in white or “pulegoso” glass and antique brass, it is available in small and medium sizes.
The Loggia collection consists of bollard light, ceiling lamp, pendant light, pole lamp, and wall light. Loggia is truly a modern outdoor lighting fixture!
Meet the designer(s): Luchetti Krelle
Luchetti Krelle is an award winning Sydney based, architecture and interior design firm established by Stuart Krelle and Rachel Luchetti. Although Luchetti Krelle maintains a diverse portfolio, its primary focus is in the hospitality sector.
As the various disciplines of design often overlap and integrate, Luchetti Krelle endeavours to offer a total concept; this includes branding and identity design, customised furniture and fitting design, salvaging and appropriation and even sourcing site locations. The result is unique and customised spaces that respond to client briefs and anticipate future trends whilst acknowledging current international design styles.
Luchetti Krelle’s focus on developing a strong relationship with the client allows for a collaborative and dynamic design process and the ability to offer a committed and personalised approach to each project. This designer/client relationship is fostered from conception to completion of projects through the various stages of the concept design, documentation, tendering and project management process.
Luchetti Krelle’s success can be attributed to the company’s commitment to extending itself beyond expectations to achieve a character and tone that fits perfectly with each design brief.
