YARRA VIEW Suite
Australian Open 2019
Tennis Australia developed the YARRA VIEW as a new offering for Australian Open 2019. The Yarra View was a 100 seat and 150 square metre marquee overlooking the Yarra River in inner city Melbourne.
The brief delivered to CHARD International requested that the general look and feel of the room should be polished with an emphasis being on “bringing the outdoors inside”. Clever ways to bring the concept of Melbourne summer to life whilst considering the sporting context of the Australian Open would work well.
CHARD adopted a playful approach, considered important to successfully achieving a sense of summer, and implemented this in a contemporary neo Memphis application which has currency in todays’ marketplace and made the interior design feel more contemporary Circles, arches, grid patterning and columns were explored in both 2D and 3D applications and we played with the notion of what was real vs artificiality. A soft, ice cream coloured palette and luxury furnishings ensured the room had a stylish, contemporary appeal.
