Blues Point Hotel Outdoor Terrace by Carter Williamson Architects

Carter Williamson Architects designed an outdoor terrace for the Blues Point Hotel in Sydney, Australia.

Project Description:
The Blues Point Hotel required an outdoor terrace that was enjoyable to be in but respected the residential neighbours by keeping the noise down and maintaining privacy. The deck unifies the internal spaces of the pub by infilling the original L shaped plan and meeting the interior spaces at floor level. By opening up the best rooms and giving them back to the hotel, and inviting these spaces to share in the joy of the deck, the hotel in an instant feels familiar yet infinitely bigger.
The curvilinear form of the deck meanders around a 30m tall Norfolk Pine, and deflects and absorb noise, while responding in part to the wonderful curves in the art deco form of the existing hotel. The warm and inviting walls were designed to live in, to embrace the patrons and provide open and exposed spaces and private and secreted nooks. Windows punch slender holes in the tall walls to embrace the view only, blinkering patrons from the neighbours gardens. The playfulness of the deck adds to the relaxing experience of a lunch or a few quite drinks on a sunny afternoon, or a night out with friends.
