NEW LOOK FOR JUPITERS HOTEL AND CASINO

Jupiters Hotel & Casino has commissioned award-winning architecture and interior design firm Luchetti Krelle to create two new dining venues as part of its $345 million redevelopment.

Kiyomi, a Japanese restaurant and bar (interior pictured) will open on December 23 and Italian restaurant Cucina Vivo will open later this summer.

Jupiters Hotel & Casino Managing Director Geoff Hogg says both venues will attract new guests to the property with innovative design features as well as world-class cuisine.

"These new restaurants will play a big part in transforming Jupiters Hotel & Casino into a world-class integrated resort. We believe these new dining experiences will set new standards for the Gold Coast food and bar scene," says Hogg.

Director and Designer Stuart Krelle says Kiyomi's design was about layering cultural cues inspired by traditional motifs and artefacts with sharp, contemporary detailing.

"We have sourced handmade Japanese parasol-inspired feature pendants from Kyoto and custom ceramic wall lights. We are also using hand-made backlit paper encapsulated in glass panels for the sushi bar," says Krelle.

Director and Designer Rachel Luchetti says Italian restaurant Cucina Vivo's design, which will include Jupiters' first outdoor dining terrace, is inspired by the Amalfi Coast and the work of renowned Italian architect Carlo Scarpa.

"We will be celebrating the beautiful Gold Coast climate by blurring the lines between inside and out. We have also been playing around with the use of stone including travertine and marble to create strong architectural elements within the space," says Luchetti.

Luchetti Krelle specialises in hospitality design with recent creations including Fat Noodle at Treasury Casino, Brisbane, Momofoku Seiobo and Adriano Zumbo at The Star, Sydney. The firm's fit-out for Adriano Zumbo at The Star won best retail design at the International Property Awards and the Eat Drink Design Awards in 2012. Fat Noodle at Treasury Casino was a finalist in the World Architecture Awards last year

The firm is known for its design of Sake Restaurant at Eagle Street Pier, Brisbane as well as the Bavarian Bier Cafes in both Broadbeach and Brisbane. The team is also currently designing the new Event Cinemas as part of Pacific Fair's redevelopment. Luchetti Krelle won Designer of the Year (People's Choice) at the IDEA awards in 2010 and is currently shortlisted for Designer of the Year 2014.
