The Collaroy Hotel

This project is a rebuild and refit of the Arlington Amusement Hall, a beachfront heritage item built in 1919 as retail shops with first floor residences and converted to a hotel in the late 90’s.

The asymmetrical federation brick facade of the hotel has a majestic street presence while the new dining room upstairs has long views north past the pine trees to the Barrenjoey Lighthouse.

Bridge St Garage

Bridge Street Garage has quickly become a favourite in the expanding Bridge Street dining precinct. Rubbing shoulders with Neil Perry’s Rockpool on George, Mr. Wong’s, and Fratelli Fresh, the Latin American inspired menu of Oscar Gorosito explores the mechanics of food and creates a new twist on an old favourite – the American-style bar and diner.

The diner is an adaptive reuse of a garage space situated in a 1920’s heritage listed Italian Renaissance style building. While the bar addresses Bridge Street through a classical sandstone façade, the restaurant opens onto Bridge Lane.


In 2010 the SMH stated that Marrickville is the new Paddington, well…. it is now the Ritz is open!

With a nod to New York’s meatpacking district, we stripped back the brick facade of the existing 70’s retail arcade and opened up the venue to the street, celebrating the long standing tradition of people watching from the “hotel verandah”.

Manly Pavilion

Built in 1933 by the Manly Steamship Company as a changing facility and tearoom for city bathers arriving by ferry, the heritage listed Manly Pavilion required a carefully considered and adept approach to its restoration and rebuild.

In reinstating the authentic soul and texture of this historic building we removed previous unsympathetic additions, then repaired and replicated the original features such as the tearoom’s original archways, terrazzo staircases, ceramic fountains, urns, tiles and bronze light fittings.


“Our team is looking forward to bringing the Marquee brand to Sydney while creating a venue with a distinct Sydney style and personality. It’s been great to see The Star unfold into an impressive casino and hotel, and now dining and entertainment complex, and we are excited to work with the talented Australian based team.”

The fun experienced in Marquee is derived from overloading your senses in what is the ultimate nightclub experience. Within Marquee there are three distinct places to travel to via the entry eclipse offering a full range of hi-tech and theatrical live performance and clubbing experiences.


Fronting a side laneway in Manuka with large format steel fire station windows glazed in bronze, pink and green tinted glass, patrons in this new wine bar and restaurant will see and be seen with rose coloured glasses.
