Revealing the traces of its art deco past, the Orrong Hotel recreates a relaxed bar and dining experience that minimises intervention and celebrates authenticity. A gradual removal of layers uncovered the pub’s original bar footprint, and more importantly, a number of original, well-preserved materials – including the bar’s striking, mustard and red-banded tiles. These findings initiated a design process centred around principles of preservation, reinstatement and reinterpretation.
Rich caramel and burnt umber plaid carpets meld seamlessly with the bar's original glazed tiling, rich timber floors and linings, offering an inviting atmosphere to nestle in by the fire and stay a while. Complementing the venue's original character, leather banquette seats, vintage artworks and ambient lighting accentuate a feeling of mellow warmth and grain. Warm, tonal and inviting, Orrong Hotel offers cosy corners, active social settings and areas to engage in the hustle and bustle of the nostalgic corner pub, bringing the old local into a new era.

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
