Howler bar and beer garden by Splinter Society Architecture, Melbourne

February 27th, 2014 by retail design blog

Melbourne may be in the midst of winter, but a new beer garden on the Australian city’s scene is sure to draw punters in from the cold. Melbournians will have to wait a few more weeks before Howler – a multi-disciplinary performing arts centre designed by Splinter Society Architecture – is fully up and running, but if phase one is anything to go by, the project will be a welcome addition to the up-and-coming Brunswick area.

The first stage involved the conversion of a former wool store into a rough-and-ready bar and beer garden, complete with exposed concrete floors and a giant metal tree. Live greenery completes the scheme, which is illuminated in warm red tones by night. The stripped-back aesthetic is in full throttle right now. Keep your eyes peeled for Frame 94, due out 1 September, when we ‘Get Raw’ by checking out Brooklyn’s heritage style, talking ‘incompleteness’ with Jo Nagasaka of Schemata Architects, and much, much more.
