Prahran Hotel in Melbourne

The Prahan Hotel is set to commerce on the second stage of its transformation. Succeeding the recent interior refurbishment, the planned new works include an extension to the rear of the venue. Featuring a facade constructed out of concrete culverts, linked together in a way that enables the patrons to sit within them to view and interact with the venue and its fellow patrons. A fully glazed courtyard cuts through the interior, connecting all levels and allowing natural light in. The design intends to add another unique and captivating venue to the ever evolving Melbourne pub scene.

The use of large stacked concrete pipes for the street facade of the addition struck a chord for multiple reasons: they have a depth and can be interactive, they have a dramatic, sculptural quality, they reference existing internal circular motifs and they suggest stacked kegs or barrels.
