Rosetta

Sydney, Australia

Rosetta lighting design by Electrolight

Description

Rosetta, Grosvenor Place is the Sydney version of the successful Melbourne restaurant by Neil Perry, celebrating his favourite regional recipes collected from extensive travels through Italy. The new setting is located in the upper annex building, overlooking the main courtyard.

Classic Harry Seidler architecture forms the base for a stunning interior fitout designed by Melissa Collison. The timeless theme of the space combines Italian lux and class, creating a dining experience to remember.

The lighting design for Rosetta looks to capture the energy and atmosphere of a classic Italian brassiere, set in the 1970’s, full of lux and glamour. Entry is via a lobby at ground floor, where guests
are welcomed into the strong Italian theme via a stunning feature chandelier.

On entering the first floor, the lofty space combines the main dining space, elevated bar and outdoor terrace bar and dining. Overlooking the main dining is the more intimate mezzanine dining on Level 2. The split levels and open working kitchen make the experience lively, but difficult to illuminate precisely and without revealing hidden detail.

Each space has been treated with a slightly different feel to reveal multiple characters within the fitout. Lighting is used in a series of layer to accentuate these characters, with mild variances of broad fill illumination, focused local lighting and integrated joinery lighting.

Lighting features are presented in various forms to enhance the charm of each space. Customisation has been used throughout, with in-joinery lighting and bespoke feature luminaires. Electrolight custom designed and assembled two chandeliers, combining complex stainless steel framing and 112x hand blown glass rondels.

The result is a dining experience full of pizzazz and the Italian spirit.
