THE_PRINCE is the only new significant hotel to be developed in the Southern Sydney region for over 50 years.
Designed with the local community in mind, the venue incorporates an expansive Lounge Bar and Bistro, Garden Terrace with dedicated play area, Sports Bar with state of the art TAB facilities and fully serviced Gaming Area.
H&E Architects Director Glenn Cunnington says of the project:
“It was about creating a sense of hospitality in what is otherwise an inhospitable light industrial area on a highway. To provide a gathering place that would appeal to all ages, not only men but for families and for friends.
When we came on board, the only one question to answer was, ‘What does a contemporary suburban pub look like? From there, we worked with The Feros Group to create THE_PRINCE, a place that responds to this question and demonstrates a balance of aesthetics, function and spatial planning.”
A greenfield project, THE_PRINCE is elevated above street-level, a gesture to separate patrons from the less hospitable world outside and one that commands a sense of stature within the locality.
Generous raked ceiling heights flood natural light through the skylights to create a warm and welcoming feel; while exposed beams provide the building with an acoustic rhythm creating intimacy within the open-plan space.
THE_PRINCE sets a new benchmark for the humble suburban pub. As a cohesive and engaging space, it has already been heavily embraced by the local community and demonstrates H&E’s commitment to deliver commercially creative venues to live, work and play.
