Club Bleach.jpg

The Gold Coast's first pop up beach bar + lawn bar referenced the colours of the ocean and sunset, with a Mediterranean flavour.

This was the Gold Coast's first bar on the sand, and stretched out with deck chairs, day lounges and table service across the site. At sunset, the illuminated canopy mirrored the colours of the sky.

Festivalgoers were welcomed inside a woodland living room to enjoy a rousing programme of gigs, interactive theatre, change-making speeches, film screenings, craft-making and late-night DJ sets.

A multi-purpose space dressed entirely with salvaged, borrowed and freecycled things (including the paint).

Australia's largest German festival and faithful to the 200+ years of tradition in Munich. Voted one of the Top 5 Oktoberfests in the world, the design approach was to stay faithful to traditions but to reimagine how they are presented.
