Project summary

The new hotel is situated on a very complex site which has multiple 4 public frontages including the Blue Mountains Railway Line, the Nepean River, and the Yandhai pedestrian bridge.

The internal programme exploits the views and orientation, whilst providing a clear and logical delineation between patron areas, Discreet VIP area and back of house spaces.

The fine dining experience and wedding facilities at first floor level include multiple bar and dining options lined by a wraparound veranda.

The attention to detail in the design has resulted in a highly efficient facility with a fantastic atmosphere.

The Log Cabin design harnesses the rich past with a bright and welcoming outlook to the future. It is a design that recreates a meeting place integral to the social fabric of Penrith and complements the work Council has done on the Riverside Precinct.

The forms and materiality of the interior finishes were informed by its rich history and culture as well as its position adjacent to the mighty Nepean River.

The 3,900sqm hotel spans two levels and includes four bars, multiple dining spaces and private function rooms including Sinclair’s, a fine dining destination named after former owner, Ross Sinclair. Gaming rooms and sports bars complement the main bar and bistro, and state of the art kitchens are designed to maximise operational efficiency.

New South Wales Jury Presentation

The attention to detail in the design has resulted in a highly efficient facility with a fantastic atmosphere. The flexibility of the design means we can change and adapt the spaces throughout the day and to suit different events. Whilst the state-of-the-art kitchens have been designed to be shard reducing the BOH footprint to both ground floor and level 1. Staffing numbers and flows were also integral in the layout of the bars, food service areas and kitchens. The venue and design compliments the local market and has been widely adopted as a worthy successor to the original Log Cabin.
