The Boheme | Oldfield Knott Architects HOSPITALITY
hose familiar with the Aussie kitsch-style
pub once known as Bobby Dazzlers will
be hard-pressed to recognise the modern,
timeless venue that is now The Boheme.
Oldfield Knott Architects carried out an
impressive transformation to create a venue
that oozes contemporary overtones mixed with
By opening up the existing internal space of the
building, the team has produced a free-flowing,
art deco-style hot spot for those looking for an
edgy yet approachable place to meet with friends.
Challenges lay in the location of the air
conditioners due to ceiling height limitations,
and restrictions with some light fittings given the
tight space in the ceiling for ventilation.
A simple colour palette maintains an elegant
feel, while existing decorative window details
were repeated throughout to connect the modern
venue with its heritage.
The use of radial timber ceilings and feature
lighting creates a sophisticated and extremely
comfortable ambience, which contributes to the
overall relaxed atmosphere.
