Other spaces Foolscap has created include Sydney's Sixpenny, Uncle in St Kilda and the White Rabbit Brewery in Healesville, Victoria. Known for a holistic, bespoke approach, at Noma Barangaroo the firm has effectively communicated Australia through Redzepi's eyes. "You enter through a large bulkhead which creates a sense of intimacy, enclosure, then this opens up towards glazed walls and views out to water, horizon, sky."
When it came to bringing Noma Australia to life in Sydney, chef René Redzepi wanted the restaurant's interiors to be shaped by local influences as much as the menu was. Here's how his vision was pieced together with bricks and mortar, and more than a little rammed earth for good measure.
