ROBBIE FLOWER TERRACE
The Robbie Flower Terrace located in the iconic MCG provides its members with the ultimate ‘sports bar’ experience. Members can enjoy a meal and views overlooking Jolimont Park, in a relaxed, open environment conveniently located adjacent to the members stand.
Our brief was to provide an improved members facility reﬂecting a ‘sports bar’. Creating an outdoor, casual eating and drinking terrace within the MCG required careful planning and a suitable selection of materials.
Appropriate rooﬁng was essential in order to ensure the terrace could operate as a year round destination – both cold and warm weather conditions needed to be accommodated, with the ﬂexibility to open-up the terrace. Large TV screens needed to be conveniently located for ease of viewing, along with a variety of seating options.
A long timber clad bar centres the space, providing a focal point and housing necessary catering provisions. Varying zones created within the space, such as the ‘bleaches seats’, ﬂoating dry bar tables and ﬁxed bar benches, enable sporting members to gather in a variety of ways.
Timber ﬂooring sets a warm and relaxed environment, complimenting the neutral palette. Clever spatial planning, maximises the footprint of the terrace, ensuring uninterrupted views whilst providing ease of circulation for patrons and staff.
