Holdfast Hotel - TOTALStone Cladding on Bar front.

Holdfast Hotel Image - Abeo Design

Allplastics supplied TOTAL STONE Cladding panels for a major hotel refurbishment in Adelaide. Working in conjunction, Abeo Design and Studio Nine recreate their fourth hotel at a combined design and architectural team. Using warm and weathered elements like coarse rope, wooden shutters and colourful picnic tables, the clinical feel of the hotel's previous refurbishment made way for a quirky, comfortable sea-side vibe.
The brief was to bring the history and warmth back to the hotel. Having been refurbished only a few years earlier, the spaces had become cold and clinical and patronage dwindled. (scroll down to read more)



With a long history serving the coastal community, the designers helped the Holdfast again tips its cap to the hotel's little-known maritime past.
Nostalgic elements, Pop-Eye look-a-like characters, now decorate the walls in the front bar. Custom designed banquette seating and window seating is the place to be in summer, with a giant glass fold up door opening to let the chatter out into the street. The beer garden's glass-front window seat frames the activity within, while the slatted bar encourages patrons to sidle up and stay a while. Inside the bistro, the atmosphere has been changed completely, with an enormous ceiling role installation replacing the 'warehouse feel'. The bar has been re-imagined to better embody natural stone and timber and scattered pendants soften the lighting throughout.

Reasons for using total stone;

1. Main reason for selection was because the Designers were trying to find a lightweight material in which they could tie in the existing natural stone wall. They also needed a layer to the existing space and this offered a nice textural element.

2. Another reason is that it is a hardy product (being fibreglass) and we required this to the bases of the fireplace hearths and also bar fronts.
