Danny Venlet - BURDEKIN RESTAURANT

BURDEKIN RESTAURANT (1991, Sydney, Australia)

BURDEKIN RESTAURANT Dining room for the Burdekin Hotel. In the particular triangular outline of the Georgian building (1840) Venlet has wherever possible restored the spaciousness and original decorations (or dating from the first transformation in 1938) and has then inserted various significant episodes, in particular: the large mouth around the old fireplace, with beech veneered furniture on a fireglass structure and, at the triangular end of the plan, a waiters service cabinet, again shaped in curves and countercurves. Design team: Danny Venlet, Marc Newson, Tina Engelen and Rowena Marsh
