peckvonhartel is delighted that the popular Jamie’s Italian Sydney restaurant design has been shortlisted for a 2012 Interior Design Excellence Award (IDEA) in the Hospitality category.

As award winning hospitality designers, peckvonhartel were invited by Jamie’s appointed Australian Development partners, to convert a dramatic site in Sydney’s Pitt Street into a fully functioning, open plan restaurant to cater for up to 200 guests. In 2011 our design for the American Club Sydney was awarded Best Club Development at the ClubsNSW Awards for Excellence and Melbourne restaurant, Union Dining, was shortlisted for an IDEA Hospitality Award.

Jamie’s Italian opened in Sydney in October 2011, the first of the highly acclaimed collection of restaurants to open in Australia. Offering delicious, rustic Italian dishes with his trademark Jamie flair, the opening of Jamie’s Italian on Pitt Street excited his many devotees; popular from the beginning, the restaurant has continued to thrive in Sydney’s restaurant scene.
