PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

Halo was designed to take full advantage of Brisbane's wonderful weather offering a sophisticated, open-air lounge environment. In the trendy suburb of Paddington on the West Side of Brisbane is the Caxton Street Precinct famous for its entertainment venues and bustling nightlife.

An architecturally designed tensioned fabric roof was installed. The 'floating' fabric roof was designed to be the halo on top of the outdoor lounge bar - a distinctive feature of the venue, and of the surrounding area.

The fabric roofing structure improves the nightclub facilities with the addition of a weatherproof rooftop bar and lounge area which allows the venue to be enjoyed by guests all year round, even in the colder months.

The roofing structure also allows f or entertainment by way of image projection onto internal fabric screens. The solution offered is striking and stands out from other buildings in the area. The aesthetic appeal of the venue is further enhanced by the floating fabric roof which gives the Halo Nightclub its 'halo'.

The floating roof provides a distinctive feature to the nightclub as well as an open air lounge area where patrons can enjoy live music in a unique venue.

Judges Comments:


"A lot of effort for a small structure, should become iconic."

"Good to see a combination of timber frame and lightweight fabric, although the structure seems less than graceful."
