Perched on Swan Street, Richmond this iconic hotel has been a comfortable home to music, food and beer lovers alike, because there’s always been something for everyone at The Corner Hotel.
And since undergoing a recent renovation, celebrating its 20th anniversary under current ownership, that’s still the case. Nothing has really changed at The Corner Hotel except for the stylish and thoughtful design, of course, and a multitude of new spaces to be enjoyed, thanks to Therefore Studio’s architects and interior designers.
Boasting a new indoor dining area, a classic outdoor courtyard, rooftop bar and private function spaces, the welcome refresh to The Corner Hotel puts punter comforts first. It not only appeals to a diverse range of users, from locals to large crowds attending nearby sporting matches or live music events the pub itself, the functional design suits all needs, including indoor or outdoor areas, smoking and non-smoking spaces, stools or seats, air conditioning for the hotter months, and a heated outdoor deck for winter.
Therefore Studio’s new design draws heavily on the existing building and the surrounding outlook of Richmond’s train lines and industrial precinct, while still tying in with the original features of this exceptionally popular venue. As you can see from the images, it’s full of honest and natural finishes, including timber, polished concrete and terracotta, as well as Ash Grey brick tiles adorning the floor. Supplied by Robertson’s Building Products, the thin brick tiles provide a versatile flooring solution, perfectly complementing the design palette.
While historically renowned as a popular live music venue, the new renovation is “helping The Corner Rooftop to become known as a great food and bar destination in its own right,” says co-owner, Tim Northeast.
