The amazing metamorphosis of The Bridge Hotel is another collaborative project between Techne Architects, Visual Builders and the Sandhill Road guys. What was your traditional local hotel has been transformed to create a series of themed dining rooms, balconies, sidewalk dining and private areas. Melbourne is well known for laneways and The Bridge’s entrance showcases this design style perfectly. By introducing the laneway, it brings a focal point for the venue and reveals little hideaways and entrances to the themed rooms. As a result, the old Melburnian Visual Builders was fortunate enough to again be the builder to rip the guts out of this pub and re-connect the dots in the vision of its client. Whilst critic’s appraisals varied, the public has absolutely loved the re-vamping of their beloved local.
