If you thought it’s impossible for ‘coastal’ design to not look naff, you certainly aren’t alone. But the old warehouse space previously home to Automata has been given a luxe marine makeover in honour of its recent inception – sustainable seafood restaurant and wine bar, Longshore. And Sydney-based interior design firm Guru Projects have absolutely killed it – the building's stark, industrial bones now exude grace and warmth, thanks to a raw, yet refined glow-up.
The Relaxed Dining Venue Award recognises outstanding Sydney restaurants in the mid-price bracket. All nominees in this category have relaxed and inviting environments, and they’re committed to delivering a singular, heightened experience for diners.
The winner for each category will be announced on October 10. To see nominees for all categories, click here.
