Longueville Hotel engaged Marchese + Partners to complete the $3.5m refurbishment of the existing hotel including the public bar, lounge, restaurant and kitchen areas, and the addition of an extensive outdoor deck area. The deck area has a range of seating options with some finding cover under Loungeville’s fresh pavilion structure. Out on the deck is an island bar, with the ubiquitous palm tree, and for those wanting to zinc up in the summer sun there’s a facilities block wrapped in zinc cladding — a fitting room. The new design is sympathetic to the original hotel complex with a splash of a modern touch. Internally the refurbishments combine timeless materials and a warm palette, to create a series of interconnected spaces all with their own distinct character while retaining consistency.
