Florence Broadhurst Screening in Parkroyal Revamp

Inset shows strategic cut-out to accommodate existing lighting
Chiaro Screens has adapted legendary Australian designer Florence Broadhurst’s ‘Cockatoos’ for ABODE at the Parkroyal Darling Harbour.  ABODE, the final stage in the hotel’s multimillion-dollar refurbishment, combines café, fine dining and bar experiences in one essential space.  The cockatoo screens cleverly delineate the space and add a touch of whimsical Australiana.
The screens of white-silhouetted birds and foliage throw playful shadows in the dining area, provide a backdrop to the bar seating, and decorate the ceilings in the informal café space. Black silhouette screens carry on the theme on ABODE’s exterior.
Forward Thinking Design’s Vanessa Cullen designed the refit and the builders, Next Constructions, brought on Chiaro Screens to provide this major design element.
“The challenge was maintaining the integrity of the Florence Broadhurst design while accommodating the parameters of the space,” said Vashti Gonda of Chiaro Screens.
“The ceiling screens had to make provisions for existing lighting, fire sprinklers and audio visual equipment,” said Vashti.  “We had to strategically position holes without disrupting the pattern.”

Stonini Panels Punctuate Modern Residence

Inset shows variation from hand manipulation
The open-plan layout in this new Kogarah Bay residence maximises space and creates a light bright communal environment.  Some spatial separation is provided with a single wall dividing two living spaces.
Stonini concrete panels, applied in horizontal format on the dividing wall, punctuate the monochrome interior decor.  The panels have been hand-manipulated during the manufacturing process providing a degree of variation from panel to panel.  A clear protective coating adds a subtle sheen.
The Stonini team manufactured and installed the panels in this private Sydney home.
Stonini concrete panels are available in two textures, concrete or industrial, and in two finishes, flat or with a gentle shine. Form cast concrete looks can also be created.
