The project was won through a competition involving three architectural firms and completed under Nettleton Willoughby and Williams. Louise
Nettleton was the client contact, the Green family and the late Anders Ousback. The Green family at the time managed many pubs, including the pub at 5 ways, Paddington.
The project scope was to create a new pub with restaurant, bottle shop and street frontages. A verandah had been part of some of the existing building in the 1940’s and removed in approximately 1970. Although the building had been destroyed by fire and left vacant for approximately 10 years, it was listed in the Heritage Schedule of Council.
Sub consultants required for the project were a Heritage architect, structural engineer, commercial kitchen consultant, access consultant, mechanical consultant, hydraulic consultant, BCA consultant and Quantity Surveyor.
At the time, the design was exemplary for the “period” that the clients briefed (French style brasserie restaurant and Bars) with zinc bar tops, banquettes, furnishings and fittings.
