Founded in 1865 the Tattersalls Club is one of Brisbane’s most prestigious social and sporting clubs. Recently offering membership to women offered strong impetus for a sophisticated, modern feel for The Conservatory.
The Conservatory offers a fresh, invigorating energy combined with a subtle nod to tradition. With a menu drawn from different parts of the world, the venue suits gatherings of friends and colleagues partaking in shared plates and authentic combinations.
A collaborative effort between Tattersall’s, Gleeds, Studiospillane, Integral, and Quadric, The Conservatory adds a fresh modern venue within the historic club. Zones include a full service commercial kitchen, modernised bathrooms, several beautiful dining areas, a showpiece marble bar, and a private dining room.
Refurbishing spaces adjacent heritage elements in a live venue can be challenging. The Tattersalls Club also posed a problem for access, and working hours, due to its central CBD location, and the co-location of in-house residents and retail tenants. Noisy works were severely restricted.
The team combined seamlessly to resolve issues as they arose. Quadric’s in-house workshop Spoke Joinery provided exceptional expertise with their quality timberwork, stonework, and metalwork.
Complete strip out and rebuild of the commercial kitchen in only five (5) weeks, allowing the Club minimum downtime.
Reclaimed timber from the Tattersalls Club was used and incorporated it into the new Conservatory space.
The result is a premium space with a timeless beauty, befitting the rich history and elegance that we have come to expect from the Tattersalls Club. For Quadric it was a privilege to contribute to the longevity and revitalisation of a time-honoured Brisbane institution.
