Ocean Beach Hotel Interior | $2M | Unbuilt Scheme

This proposal for an iconic pub located on Marine Parade, Cottesloe involved a significant upgrade of the exterior facades as well as an interior upgrade of the lower and upper bars.  The scheme establishes a casual feel whilst also complementing the character of the existing Art Deco building using a natural textural materials palette incorporating timber, raw concrete, concrete blocks and soft landscaping. The interior focuses on maximising the buildings panoramic view of the ocean. Custom built furniture units incorporating tables, bench seats, planter boxes as well as vine screening are used to break up a large interior into a series of intimate pockets for small groups. The upper bar 'sky deck' includes an open-able louvre roof as well as top hinged folding windows establishing a strong connection to the outdoor environment and also opens up the existing atrium space drawing natural light into the centre of the building.
