Top Honours for Private Dining

Taking top spot, the Private Dining Room by Studio Nine Architects in Adelaide restaurant, Sean’s Kitchen, has been listed as one of the top spots in the country for intimate dining. Making the Qantas Travel Insider’s top picks, the dining space was designed by Studio Nine designers in 2016.

“Working with the bones of an incredible heritage space, our design focused on layering honest materiality that would age and patina, complementing the existing structure and taking it to another level of unique exclusivity,” explained Interior Designer, Sara Horstmann.

Working in collaboration with project managers, Schiavello Constructions and Adelaide furniture designer, Justin Hermes, the space all came together right at the end of the project. Many months in the planning, the room houses the beautiful custom made feature dining table by Justin Hermes Design.

“Our mission was to create a space that is pleasantly unexpected, drawing upon the existing architectural design and Sean’s quirky style to create a special space with timeless design,” explained Interior Designer, Ashleigh Pinto.

Working within the Skycity Casino and in an iconic SA Heritage building, the brief was always going to be challenging explains design director, Mandy Goehr.

“At the end of the day, we were all working together to recreate the quality and honesty that comes across in Sean’s menu. The client is thrilled with the result and the whole design team feel proud to have been a part of re-purposing such a historic space,” comment Mandy.
