de Rome Architects was engaged to complete detailed design and construction documentation for the Hotel Realm outdoor garden bar Pavilion. The initial concept design was completed by Sydney-based design studio Redgen Mathieson.
The Pavilion sits on the existing Hotel Realm outdoor terrace, and provides a semi-enclosed outdoor seating and bar area. The Pavilion uses dark-stained vertical timber boards across the internal and external facade. The success of the design relies on a highly detailed building fabric such that the spacing of the timber creates clean openings for seating, windows, doors, and bar.
The Pavilion creates opportunity for intimate seating areas, whilst the openings in the back wall of the Pavilion filters connection to the remainder of the outdoor terrace. An extended glazed awning provides enclosure between the Pavilion and existing building.
