The Deck Bar Frankston

October 18, 2013

ITN Architects has turned the rough raw shell of a former stripper bar into the much more respectable The Deck Bar Frankston.

The Deck Bar Frankston by ITN Architects is a new bar/restaurant overlooking the Frankston waterfront in a former post office/chinese restaurant/stripper bar. The building had been gutted by previous incarnations, leaving a rough raw shell.

The new works over two levels included three bars, a kitchen and various dining and lounge areas. The existing raw character was enhanced by retaining floorboards, exposing brickwork, and reusing old roof timbers for furniture and fittings. Rope screens, rusted steel panelling and old craypot light shades added to the nautical ambience.

A large new roof deck was added, with a bamboo and rope clad canopy over a stone faced bar, for a beach bar feel.
