fantastic inner-city water-front venue has just had a stand-out renovation, using greenery extensively. Wonderfully set on riverbanks at Kangaroo Pt, Brisbane, the manicured external gardens flow inside with the help of quality artificial plants
-in big outdoor/indoor pavilion, the large bare canopy was too high, not a conducive human scale, we added large hanging baskets make for a cosier, comfortable feel
-the hard walls where pavilion becomes building have been softened by trailing green-curtains
-elsewhere a bare concrete arbour has been turned into a 'selfie shot' location by adding a green-wall & timber seat
-inside, again hard bulkheads have had assorted greenery added to soften & continue green theme internally
-adding greenery inside was a challenge, with open partitions & glass-walls as well as not wanting to lose floor space? There was however a large irregular shaped ceiling & rather than just add more hanging-baskets, we used trailing vines, climbing & twisting 'randomly' to break-up bare spaces.
The end result is a vibrant 'refreshed' Venue where green gardens sweep inside pavilion for a comfortable semi alfresco dining experience, whilst at night inside becomes a cool place to be. Happy Patrons from breakfast to the wee hours means money well invested by a clever Management...
