Luchetti Krelle Add A Little “Residential” To The Byron at Byron

Luchetti Krelle Add A Little “Residential” To The Byron at Byron

While maintaining a luxury-resort prestige, the restaurant and bar at The Byron at Byron has one-upped itself taking the term, at home with nature, a little more literally than most.

On first impression, it may seem a little odd for the interior design of luxury resorts and boutique design hotels to aspire towards a sense of the familiar. And yet that was exactly what the execs of The Byron at Byron enlisted the help of Sydney-based architecture and interior design studio Luchetti Krelle to do. After a speedy six-week renovation, the restaurant, bar and central facilities are born again.

“The concept of the refurbishment was to personify the well-travelled Australian and to bring a more residential quality to the resort’s hub,” says Lyn Parche, General Manager of the luxury resort, The Byron at Byron.

But if you really think about it, it makes a little more sense. As design-invested travellers, patrons should feel they’re in a space that is new and different to their own, yet comfortable enough to relax: mi casa es su casa, right?

Luchetti Krelle is no stranger to the hospitality sector – nor strangers to a busy schedule. Recent work includes Kiyomi, Jupiters Casino, Gold Coast; Mode Kitchen & Bar, Park Hyatt, Sydney; Longrain, Tokyo, and M&G Café and Bar at The Star Gold Coast, the latter of which was shortlisted for the Social Space award at the 2017 INDE.Award’s.

Central to the bar and restaurant, a statement copper island bar champions the space, serving both the veranda and interior lounge/restaurant. Modern Italian furniture and European lighting work with the down-to-earth atmosphere and proximity to nature by way of a rustic colour palette: burnt orange, heavy maroon, copper and dark timber dominate the space.

A monumental sandstone reception desk, topped and lined with copper, greets guests on arrival. Soon, works by emerging artist and winner of the 2015 Archibald, Julian Meagher, will line the verandas. Luchetti Krelle commissioned the local artist to paint a series of contemporary still life paintings featuring Australian natives.
