ACME restaurant is a Raw and Intimate Retreat Luchetti Krelle

ACME is an Italian-Asian fusion restaurant designed by Luchetti Krelle in Rushcutters Bay, Sydney, Australia. ACME restaurant makes the most of the building’s existing features and heritage. The brief, a refined yet casual space where the food is the hero.

A pared back and considered design, the restaurant is split into 3 distinct spaces over 2 levels. The front bar is a casual dining experience, high top tables and window seating open to the streetscape and passers-by.

The surrounding walls have been left untreated, showing glimpses of exposed plaster and stripped paint. Within the formal dining space, dark timber banquette seating sits amongst fresh painted walls complimenting the rough plaster of the front bar and an open kitchen maintains the casual attitude of the restaurant.

Downstairs the private dining room is a raw and intimate retreat. A private cellar that offers diners an exclusive space with existing walls exposed and the sandstone fireplace left intact.

An island bench offers an informal meeting space for private diners to gather before their meal, guests are then ushered towards the custom-made extendable table, striking in its design, the table offers collapsible ends that raise and lower dependent upon group size.
