outdoor zones, and bold, bright colours almost
everywhere else. Most striking are the individually
coloured outdoor cabanas that recall the old
beachfront bathing boxes in Brighton.
Continuing the beach theme, wave forms
repeat inside and out, with palm trees naturally
balancing the synthetic external finishings.
Illumination plays a huge role at Matisse, with
extensive use of colour-changing LED lighting in
the facade, and throughout the cabanas, coffered
ceilings and other areas.
Careful consideration had to be applied
when selecting the materials for this venue,
due to its coastal location. The sea breeze is
‘controlled’ with remote-operated Aneeta screens
and tinted tilt-up glazed walls. The non-slip
ceramic tiles and compressed fibre cement
weatherboarding were chosen for their durability
without compromising style.
Despite the tight timeframe allotted for the
completion of this project, each stage came
together without a hitch to result in one of Perth’s
most dynamic watering holes.
