When the owns of Leogate Estate Wines decided to build a new restaurant and wedding venue they new that they wanted the venue to be timeless and sophisticated. The design of the building is a large U space, allowing all of the rooms views of the courtyard and mountain backdrop.
Large windows and doors were used extensively throughout the building to both light fill the rooms and open up the courtyard views.
The property is located in the heart of the Hunter Valley wine region, so having windows and doors that open up the spaces to allow natural cooling ventilation on warm afternoons was a priority. Colonial bars were included on the windows and doors to help create a traditional feel for the venue.
Large hinged doors were used to open up the rooms for the views of the mountains and allow the guest to move easily from the function rooms to the outdoor. White hardware was selected to complement the white frames with stainless steel hardware used selectively as a feature throughout.
