Working within the constraints of the existing building, Buchan has designed an additional level, providing another 2,850sqm for dining facilities. Importantly, this level will seamlessly integrate into the existing refurbished club. The use of natural materials, such as stone and wood, will assist to create an inviting environment. A spacious grand foyer will be a central meeting point offering easy dispersion to all areas of the club with new escalators and lifts and stairs connecting to both upper and lower levels.
The foyer will welcome visitors with a spacious lounge, expansive floor-to-ceiling windows and an understated ceiling void giving uninterrupted sightlines to the levels above. Outside, the new courtyard pavilion and alfresco dining are partially covered. This will offer an outdoor dining experience in all weather conditions.
The redevelopment provides one of the biggest changes ever in the club’s 50-year history. The goal is to accommodate its growing popularity and serve an increasing number of ‘Wenty’ visitors.
