Description

The Town Hall hotel is a Heritage listed hotel dating back to 1866 where it was granted one of the first Licenses to the then Green Gate Inn as it was known.

Our brief was to retain the legacy of the Townie as a locals’ pub but inject enough style to open up the venue to a new kind of patron.

Along with the major interior renovation, the brief also called for a new outdoor gaming area. More images of that space can be viewed here. Town Hall Gaming.

We proposed to demolish numerous poor quality additions and build a high-quality gaming room addition. This addition will be constructed from masonry paying homage to the existing brick hotel through materiality and in essence, creating a demarcation between the old and the new. The long wall length is to be broken by expressed header bricks design to play with the ever changing light through shadows cast onto the wall.

It’s sleek, not slick. Nostalgic but not naff. And just enough of a wink at the past to appreciate how far this country’s come
