East Maitland Bowling Club

Maitland, NSW

Developed from a strong ongoing relationship with East Maitland Bowling Club, EJE were approached to undertake the design of the club’s latest revamp. With the brief to deliver a “5 Star Hotel” feel, EJE drew inspiration from the city’s heritage with a contemporary twist. The rich mining history informed the use of stone, metal and dark accents. The organic form of the custom carpet, ceilings, lighting and joinery are reminiscent of the topography of a quarry. The use of feature lights and bulkheads increased the scale of the spaces and creates a welcome drama. The palette brings the club together, while subtle highlights deliver separate zones for patrons seeking various venue options.

The most recent development has been the complete transformation of the food and beverage offering at the Club. Understanding the move away from “all you can eat” buffets, the design created two distinct restaurants, each complete with a new kitchen. Raw natural use of materials, feature lighting and unique wall murals provide each restaurant with a distinct identity and providing patrons with a greater choice in a relaxed environment.
