In Focus | Été Restaurant in Barangaroo by Foolscap Studio

Designed by Foolscap Studio, Été Restaurant at Sydney’s Barangaroo, is a French Provençal lover's dream come true. Referencing the warm French aesthetic, which looks effortlessly put together, the space is a ode to classic French style, featuring beautiful blonde bentwood chairs, long communal tables, hand-painted murals and a warm palette of plum, burgundy and dark timbers. Été, which translates to ‘summer’ in French, is focused on changes and in particular the changes and moods of the different seasons - the menu constantly changes to reflect the seasons, as does the interior decoration. We can't wait to visit!
