Fabritecture  recently designed and installed a tensioned fabric structure on the roof of the Halo Lounge Bar on Caxton Street in Brisbane.

The suburb of Paddington on the West Side of Brisbane is famous for its trendy bars, clubs and restaurants while the Caxton Street precinct is well known for top entertainment venues and nightlife.

Halo Lounge Bar is one of Caxton Street’s newest venues and offers a sophisticated, open‐air lounge environment to take full advantage of Brisbane’s wonderful weather.

Fabritecture worked with AGS Constructions to design, engineer and install a unique fabric roofing structure for the venue.

Made from Ferrari 702 Alu Black blockout fabric with a gutter suspended from the steel framework above, the 504m² structure is designed to look like a halo and will include screens installed on the guttering so that images can be projected onto the fabric wall.

The project presented some challenges due to the irregular shape of the tensioned fabric structure but came together to the exact specifications of both the client and the architect. The structure provides a distinctive feature to the nightclub and also serves as an open air lounge area where patrons can enjoy live music and a few drinks in a unique venue that takes full advantage of the warm Queensland weather.

Backed by superior project management expertise and commitment to service excellence, Fabritecture continues to exceed client expectations in the delivery of high quality and creative sustainable fabric architecture.
