The format of the design is based on Delfin Real Estate’s “ Mawson Lakes Town Centre” Brief and the Mawson Lakes Town Centre/University Campus Master Plan prepared by the Denton Corker Marshall Group.

As part of the Design Brief the following were addressed:

  • The Tavern/Hotel is a key and signature “Landmark “ building.
  • The operation needs to function as a community meeting place such as the “corner pub” where students,residents,and the working population can interact.
  • Sidewalk drinking.
  • Facades that open onto the sidewalk.
  • Balconies over footpaths.
  • Building to be a minimum of 2 storeys.
  • Gaming to be addressed tastefully and sensitively.
  • External signage kept to a minimum.
  • Access to University was addressed, with the site acting as an interface with the Uni.
  • Motel accommodation-38 apartments&Conference Facilities.
Materials used in construction were:
  • Walls: Painted precast concrete panels.
  • Roofs: Generally low pitch shielded from view with some pitched roof forms.
  • Windows: Ground floor areas ,stackable bifold doors opening on to “ALFRESCO” Dining areas with pergolas over and vines.
  • Colours: To meet provisions of B2 Architectural Form- drawn from pallets of yellows, reds, oranges, greens, & browns.
