Laid-back nostalgia on Autstralia's gold coast: Burleigh Pavilion. Where beachlife, architecture and interior design design reflect many of our daydreams. Call it a Miami Vice confectionary palette, laced with a heavy dose of beach subculture.
The catchy oceanfront pavilion dates back to 1987, located in the south area of Brisbane, famous for its long sandy beaches. Sydney-based architectural practice Alexander & CO was commissioned for the renovation of the local landmark.
Demarcated by a rattan ceiling, The Tropic restaurant adds top brass cachet with Deco-inspired Henry Wilson wall sconces dotted around fresh mint green chairs and soft serves of butterscotch leather seating that flows onto the al fresco balcony.
The Pavilion, with crisp white-tiled window nooks providing absolute beachfront views amongst communal fairy-floss pink and pistachio tables is defined by an expanse of raised timber benches with marine blue stools offsetting the colour schemes’ overall sweetness. Outdoors, the casual Beach Bar’s undulating canopy of white umbrellas imitate the surf break beyond.
