Placed in the centre of the Mascot shops, the Tennyson has been a favourite for locals for years. Recently House of Bamboo® were asked to help give the outdoor area a face lift, creating a more ambient environment using the existing structure. The area is placed at the back of the establishment backing onto the carpark and driveway to the bottle shop so it was necessary to separate the area from the driveway.
The walls were clad with Natureed® and acacia screen was used to line the bottom half of the walls. The underside of the roof was lined with Natureed® not only disguising the unattractive sheets of colour bond and poly carbonate but also providing a reduction in heat from the hot western sun. Black bamboo was installed as the barrier between the driveway and carpark, disguising these areas by creating a natural “Balinese “ feel back drop.
