Whats Next for Hospitality – 24 June

How will our restaurants and cafés change? Will we still dine out or will we go to the take out window or perhaps the window will become our night out! Or a restaurant visit might become an occasional occurrence instead of the every day routine that it has come to be. What does that mean for design? Does a hospitality interior upscale or downsize?

What’s Next for Hospitality

How will our restaurants and cafés change? Will we still dine out or will we go to the take out window or perhaps the window will become our night out! Or a restaurant visit might become an occasional occurrence instead of the every day routine that it has come to be. What does that mean for design? Does a hospitality interior upscale or downsize?

The idea that hospitality venues will shrink or even become larger and more spacious means that design will be paramount in every case. How will a hotel, bar, pub, club or event space handle a mass of people utilising its offering? Or perhaps we will have venues that limit the number of patrons and how can this work in a hotel or at an event?

On the other side of the hospitality coin is accommodation venues, hotels large and small. Will boutique accommodation projects be in demand? Will there be a change in product and interior design and how will designers accommodate any new requirements. So many questions to ask and investigate.

They are passionate about detail and frequently collaborate personally with local artists, crafts people, florists, graphic designers, fashion designers and even chefs. With focus primarily on hotel projects, after the famed completion of the W hotel In Hong Kong in 2008, their small studio is constantly in demand for design savvy hotel projects.

Rachel Luchetti, Co-Director, Luchetti Krelle

Rachel is a creative chameleon. Whilst no two hospitality projects share stylistic similarities, each one layers ideas to tell atmospheric stories through highly customised design allowing the tactility of materials, instinctual palette choices and innovative artisan collaborations to convey emotive elements on multiple subliminal levels. What aligns Rachel’s oeuvre is her unflinchingly focus upon conceptual integration with an ever practical commitment to comfort, functionality and durability. Notable Sydney projects include Saké Manly, the Hotel Centennial and the extensive transformation of the harbourside landmark, Bathers’ Pavilion. As a respected innovator amongst the Australian interior design community, Rachel has featured regularly on the Lifestyle Home channel providing interior design insights for home owners. She also resides on design judging panels and delivers industry talks. Committed to nurturing new local talent, Rachel has lectured at both The University of NSW and The University of Technology Sydney and has mentored countless young designers over the years.
