The Normanby Hotel has been a Brisbane landmark for 129 years. Following the sale and refurbishment of this heritage-listed building earlier this year, the Normanby Hotel successfully re-opened in September.
The newly renovated space pays homage to the Hotel’s roots by offering a contemporary clubhouse experience. Brisbane’s pub-culture has boomed in recent years and The Normanby Hotel is the latest of Brisbane’s iconic and long-standing watering holes to receive an upgrade. Punters are spoilt for choice with a beer garden and screen for sporting events, lounge areas made for sunset cocktails, bistro-style dining areas and a VIP lounge.
Form Landscape Architecture, inspired by the Hotel’s rich history and local culture, designed all green spaces to compliment the contemporary clubhouse theme.
The talented Martin Brothers team were responsible for the installation. Their creative and innovative approach to all their projects sets them apart, and they are well on their way to achieve their vision of becoming the most successful landscape business in Queensland. This project was no exception.
Timber bench tops were added to the tops of 1200 Tall and 1500 Tall U Bowls as well as 1200 Tall Cylinder planters to create unique bar tables. The central 2200 Soul seat planter was softened with inviting red cushions. Additional greenery in troughs, hanging baskets and pot clusters enhance the interior styling theme.
The Normanby Hotel has gone from strength to strength since re-opening and we look forward to seeing the plants and envisioned landscape mature.
