In a refurbished Art Deco era auto workshop in Sydney’s Woolloomooloo sits Riley St Garage, a gritty New-York borough inspired bistro. Realised by RAD Studios, the renovation plays up the industrial and structural elements of the space with exposed brick and the huge air conditioning duct that becomes a dominant design feature, delineating the central bar area. Gloss black subway tiles and tan leather banquettes as well as the vintage medicine cabinets in the bathrooms add to the retro-classic feel. Images via RAD Studios.

In a city full of noise, sometimes the way to stand out is to be quiet. London-based firm Alexander Waterworth Interiors has done just that with their understated and rustic design for Nolita’s The Musket Room. With the combination of a six metre long walnut bar, lime washed brickwork and greenery that carries through from the careful floral arrangements to the herb garden outside, the feel is much more rustic farmhouse than Michelin-starred restaurant. However, there is still a beautiful attention to detail which can be seen in the scalloped tiles of the bar that tessellate with distressed floorboards and the classic colour pairing of teal upholstery with brass chandeliers. Casual, subtle yet elegant, the space is a welcome refuge from the urban.
