Prahran Hotel in Melbourne by Techne Architects

Australian architecture studio Techne has recently completed the second stage of Prahran Hotel transformation. A stack of 17 oversize concrete pipes makes up the façade of this new extension that houses the new bar of the hotel.

The stunning facade is constructed out of concrete culverts, linked together in a way that enable the patrons to sit within them to view and interact with the venue and its fellow patrons.

The design intends to add another unique and captivating venue to the ever evolving Melbourne Pub scene. Modern stools have been clustered around bar tables providing a contemporary and welcoming space for an after work drink. The bar extends over three floors and allowing the customer to choose between differente atmospheres.

The footprint is large, but with well-considered spaces that lend a feeling of intimacy. The large vestibule adorned with intricate wall furnishings leads to a contrasted space on the second level complete with a bar that gives ’30s design a modern twist. Ideal for private functions, upstairs is best described as the ‘speakeasy’ environment complete with smaller nooks and crannies for ‘tight talking’.
