The jury unanimously agreed this project represents interior design of the absolute highest standard. It’s an incredibly sophisticated response to the renovation of an iconic 1929 pub and the designers have shown remarkable skill, while also fulfilling all programmatic requirements. Significantly, there’s consideration of both the materiality and motifs relevant to the building’s history, which sees the original Art Deco style retained yet delivered in a completely fresh, modern way.
Everything is exquisitely detailed, with a high commitment to craftsmanship, and the resulting continuity between spaces is strong. Overall, the concept is likewise rigorous, creating a welcoming ambience that appeals to diverse groups of patrons. The designers have ultimately achieved a durability and comfort that is all the more impressive for not having compromised on aesthetics. It’s simply a beautiful outcome.
Hotel Rose Bay is an iconic pub in the harbourside suburb of Sydney’s Rose Bay. We designed the pub to feel right for its environment and to stand the test of time. We employed a single design language, taking cues from its deco origins, using durable materials and crafted details.
