Fresh and fun: diverse dining brings everyone together
Our brief asked us to reimagine a long-standing club as an inclusive and connected venue catering to diverse customers groups. Our challenge was to design a venue with well-defined individual zones that also functioned as unified elements within a cohesive whole.
There are 4 venues; “The Palms,” which is inviting to regular members, who would typically dine during lunch and early evening, the “Kitchen Table,” which allows for large family groups to dine in an environment where the activity of children does not detract the dining experience for other guests. Visually connected to a significant play zone and tying in with the colour of the gelato bar, the space is both fun and playful. “Embers” is a former TAB lounge has been converted into a unique Brazilian themed offering, focused around a ‘Josper’ cooker. “The Terrace” features a rejuvenated former sports lounge areas, opening to the outside and bringing a fresh and vibrant atmosphere off the main club lounge area.
Our solution divided the venue into a series of interconnected neighbourhoods – separate venues unified via complementary floor and ceiling treatments and clear wayfinding. Dining options cater to large family celebrations, nights out with friends, secluded members’ areas and a sports bar with new indoor-outdoor aspects.
