THE BUILDERS CLUB
Club Interior Design - Redwah Project
Redwah breathes new life into this well-established Wollongong Club with a fresh and modern, timeless design. In collaboration with GroupN Architects, we were able to complete a major redevelopment of the club to achieve the unrivalled members experience The Builders Club was looking for. The new interior design concept for the venue included space concept design for all areas, flooring, ceiling details, all finishes and sketch detailing documentation, as well as FF & E selections and styling.
To create a destination venue for the existing community whilst also enticing new clientele to the club, we had to address a number of issues with the original design. The venue lacked street presence and had insufficient car parking, so it was important that while we improved the outdated club design, we also worked within the existing building footprint to provide a sense of arrival for guests. The new entrance design and orientation provided an abundance of extra parking space, as well as an ease of access to the new grand entrance and modern foyer.
In addition to the exterior renovations, the club interior received space planning for a cocktail bar, stone grill restaurant, state-of-the-art sports bar, café, lounge, bistro and gaming area, which were all included in the design concept. The club even incorporated a new showcase pizza oven in the hospitality fitout.
Drawing inspiration from the history of the club and its surroundings, building materials were selected to enhance the original look and feel of the venue. Reclaimed timbers were an effective choice when making reference to the history of The Builders Club. They provided a sustainable option, whilst also creating warmth and depth for the contemporary design. Other noteworthy materials which added to the buildings historical features included; terrazzo-look tiles for the required slip rating, timber-look laminates for durability, metal accents, a feature woven sculpture which took inspiration from indigenousness fish baskets, and an eclectic selection of feature lighting.
Although this was a challenging project in terms of working with an existing building and existing services. The concept and design came together seamlessly and produced a modern hospitality design that will go on to stand the test of time.
