Supaslat Driftwood ceiling panels from Supawood Architectural Lining Systems were recently selected by a Sydney architect for the restoration of a well know heritage building in Manly.

The old bathers pavilion at Federation Point in Manly Cove boasts unrivaled views of Sydney Harbour and out to the Heads, and was originally build in 1933. The heritage listed Manly Pavilion recently underwent a detailed restoration and the building now houses a restaurant which favors a Mediterranean theme, complimenting the original style of the historic building.

Careful consideration for the venue’s unique heritage was a priority throughout the restoration and with this in mind the architect looked for materials that blended, not only with the Mediterranean theme, but with the maritime setting.

Supawood’s Supaslat Driftwood ceiling slats were selected to detail the expanse of the ceiling in the main restaurant area as it was considered the ideal product to create a wharf style aesthetic atmosphere.

Supaslat Driftwood ceiling panels have a weathered effect that is applied by hand etching solid wooden slats, making every slat unique. For this project the slats were finished in antique white.

The use of Supaslat Driftwood for the ceiling not only enhances the overall theme but also provided the means to cleverly merge and conceal utilities such as speakers and air conditioning vents. Supaslat is also highly durable with effective acoustic properties.

Supawood is pleased that their ceiling linings are featured prominently in the restoration of an important icon from Sydney’s heritage.
