‘The Courtyard’ is an internal hospitality garden, a gathering and hosting space. The space is inward facing with two central courtyards generating light and air. There is beautiful sense of looking out to a garden from most of the intimate lounging spaces around it. From Mexico City, to Dee Why, our team traveled the world to understand how to best create a vibrant internal hospitality space when the building envelop is limited. A requirement of the brief the central trees visible through the central structural brick arches, a key design feature for the area. There are two distinct areas to the courtyard bar; the cocktail lounge and the central bar. The design character is casual with a little frivolity, but is the result of meticulous planning, guidance and craftsmanship. An area for fine wine and shared plates, to gourmet pizzas and craft beers in an elevated experience.
