Atop the 10 storey Nelson House, Clarence Street, work is now underway for the new Disco Volante rooftop bar designed by Tony Owen.
Nelson House is an iconic heritage building being Sydney’s first steel frame high rise building, and has a ‘distinct classical façade of high heritage significance’.
The 2 storey addition, being developed by the Ausino Group, contains a restaurant and bar with outdoor dining. The open plan space and central free-form bar creates a minimalist design along with the lose seating. There is a glass box for public areas - along with a masonry box for services - shaded by a pattern of disc shaped aluminium elements. The discs were designed using parametric software in order to maximise protection from the sun throughout the day, resulting in a seemingly random pattern that forms a unique sculpture to crown the building.
Tony Owen Partners focus on gaining successful approvals on prominent residential and commercial developments. They believe that there is a place for exciting and unique architecture that is based on commercial principles and their clients’ needs. To find out more, click here.
