TOTÒ CHAMPAGNE WINE BAR DARLINGHURST
Nestled between restaurant Verdé and Francis Lane, Totò Champagne Wine Bar is an exercise in considered planning and context sensitivity. With a nod to the building's Victorian heritage, the interior expression lays bare the original timber and brick structure, reinvigorating old materials in new forms. Precious space is maximised within a tight footprint. The raw and industrial aesthetic showcases a main bar clad strikingly with calacutta viola marble and Corten steel, blackened steel bar shelving and rustic leathers. Upstairs a private dining room sets a complementary and intimate tone via rich hardwood floors and ceilings.
