The Grand Old Lady of Melbourne’s Abbotsford


The Grand Old Lady wasn’t looking at her best when Techné got to work, and the brief was to give the place a thorough overhaul while still retaining plenty of the old character.

In this spirit the 1923 heritage protected façade was restored, while retaining the well-known green paint job, and old parts of the interior have been replaced with modern interpretations; an example is the Art Deco front bar. Never a place to take itself too seriously, The Terminus has continued in that vein by adding the kitsch Paris Tropical upstairs bar. The encroachment of high-rise building all around had started to choke the neighbourhood a bit, so Techné decided to combat this by adding a lush green garden area in which locals could escape the surrounding concrete jungle.


Punters can rest assured that the beer is up to snuff as well, as the unpasteurised Carlton Draught on tap here comes straight from the brewery located just two minutes down the road. Here’s to the return of the Grand Old Lady.

10 Amazing Architecturally Staircases around the World

These amazing stairs might even make you stand up to your fear of heights.
While we’ve seen some pretty impressive staircases inside homes, a three-bedroom cottage just doesn’t offer the opportunity to be so, shall we say … adventurous with stairs. But go outside, where the space and the architectural opportunities have no bounds, and you can create some really cool — almost death-defying — stair designs. Take a look at some of the most impressive around the world:

1. “Tiger & Turtle – Magic Mountain” in Duisburg, Germany

Created out of zinc and steel by the German artists Heike Mutter and Ulrich Genth, this 69-foot tall staircase feels like a walkable roller coaster. Physics (and a no-entry sign) will stop you from making it over the the loop, but there are LED lights built into the handrails so visitors can appreciate this 249-step climb even at night.
