Melbourne’s Prahran Hotel: A pub with a difference

The pub: a gathering place for mates, families and colleagues, but above all, an Australian institution. The one thing pubs usually aren’t, however, is architecturally flattering (unless you’re into super old buildings which have probably soaked up more spilled alcohol then your average alcoholic). The Prahran Hotel in Melbourne is a pub with a difference.

Techné Architects have transformed a tiny back add-on into a three level playground of concrete pipes and leather upholstery. Guests can sit within the pipes on any level they choose with views to both inside and beyond the hotel. The special part, though, is the 12-seat VIP booth which feels as though it is suspended above the hotel. Oh, the toilets are quite nice, too.
