Mr B’s and Tao Lounge Sydney

Bold architectural interventions and eclectic layering help to recreate a former Sydney institution.

A new concept for the refurbishment of the former Mandarin Club in the Sydney CBD including refacing the street front, a bar, mezzanine cocktail lounge, gaming lounge and basement night club. The design used the building’s existing structural fabric and history as an element to create a ‘point of difference’, which was part of the initial brief.

A new basement level nightclub, Tao Lounge, was also created as part of the overall redevelopment of Mr B’s.
