Designing a Sydney restaurant for this pair of global nomads was lots of fun. Sunny and Ross Lusted have spent years working front and back of house with the acclaimed Aman resort group, so of course they brought a strong concept to the table. To match it, we came up with an interior that is part Japanese, part Scandinavian, and a lot about a relaxed, stylish dining experience. Housed in a classified 1930s building close to Circular Quay, the Bridge Room is an eclectic mix of influences brought together into a seamless whole. Personally, I love the felt “origami” wall – at once an extension of their East-West aesthetic, and a great sonic buffer to boot!
