The Community Pub - Berwick, Victoria
The community pub, ironicallt brings us back to regional australian pubs, where kids and parents alike find a place for recreation and socialising. The new pub is presented as a bistro with large dining facilities & outdoor play spaces for children. They are a representation of typical suburban or regional life & a form of social and community building on their own way. The proposal has a large footprint of 2500sqm & as it will sit within an existing streetscape with boutique retail and food & beverage outlets, the ends of the building and entrances are clearly expressed to indicate accessibility. The elongated profile of the structure is broken and deconstructed by a series if organic steel portals and projecting beams.
