Coolangatta, QLD & Torquay VIC
Both completed late 2019
As the name suggests, 4 Pines X Boardriders is a collaboration between 4 Pines and Boardriders in two of their existing coastal retail locations – Coolangatta (QLD) and Torquay (VIC), to provide a new Café & Small Bar offering within the existing retail footprint.
Locally situated to the Ocean in both iconic locations, the interior of the existing café space was a great canvas for the 4 Pines aesthetic. With a number of existing features such as the timber floor boards, weathered timber wall cladding, exposed ceiling services and large blackened steel framed windows, both spaces fitted perfectly into the 4 Pines strong sustainability ideals.
At both venues the bar was left in its original location with new zinc bar top added with recycled timber. To ground the bar interior design, a blacked steel gantry with expanded steel grille mesh was suspended above the bar and styled with 4 Pines-centric items such as growler bottles, apple crates, plants, ropes, pulleys and festoon lights.
The Coolangatta site in particular boasts two ‘Smartbrew’ beer systems for on-site small batch brewing – one of only limited few across Australia.
