Club Catalina Bar & Lounge Sustainable Fitout Design & Project Management


SIZE: 1000sqm

FITOUT BUDGET: $1.3 million

SCOPE: As part of our 3 year Building Master Plan to reposition Club Catalina in its marketplace, FTD was tasked with addressing the Club’s dated hospitality spaces and making these more spatially efficient and attractive to a family-focussed market. When first entering the Club we found a garish colour scheme, shockingly patterned carpets, ill-conceived bulkheads and acrylic infills trying to disguise the air-conditioning and ceiling beams, and oversized column boxings that destroyed all sight lines and dominated the compromised floor space. But the venue had good ‘bones’ and we realized there was a story to be told, if they could strip back the layers and let the structure speak through re-use and timeless, sustainable design.
