491 Dean St Albury NSW
The old Soho pub in Dean Street Albury has been completely re-imaged encompassing design elements inspired from bars around the world to deliver the new Public House establishment. The striking timber façade fronting the main street is highlighted by the brilliant greenery of vines and plants making the entrance quite enticing.
Inside, Visual Builders amazing timber work is showcased within the organic design. Highlights include recycled semi stripped timber dining tables, black framed diagonally aligned lattice work, dining areas framed by intricate pergolas and beautifully constructed booth seating. A central court yard style area within the venue is home to a fully retractable roof that provides natural ventilation to the venue and allows one to sky gaze whilst relaxing with a drink. The upstand leading to the retractable roof features a shingle roof inspired timber paling veneer and a magnificent Ficus tree sitting centrally to the area. Beautifully tiled walls feature as a background throughout the venue providing a sleek back drop to enhance featured areas like the bar with its azure blue painted pressed metal face.
