BUILDING HISTORY

A LANDMARK BUILDING BROUGHT BACK TO LIFE

SINCE 1929

 

Striking in its day, the Royal Insurance Buildings, built in an Inter War Commercial Palazzo style, drew praise for Perth; the Royal Institute of British Architects (R.I.B.A.) awarding the building facade third place for its 'Street Architecture' in 1932.

 

Designed by Hobbs, Smith and Forbes who also designed the WA Trustee Co. (1925), Newspaper House (1932) and the now demolished St George's House.

From the marble entry steps and Donnybrook sandstone facing to the distinctive arches design, the building is now an icon of a largely lost era of architecture in Perth.

RESTORED FROM DECAY

 

Restoring The Heritage Wine Bar to it's former glory meant working closely with the Brookfield Place redevelopment project to give the interior a new lease of life. Researching the building's history with an eye for detail ensured that the building was given the love and life it deserved. Always at the forefront was a strong vision for a wine bar showcasing one of the best cellars in the city, alongside modern food.

COPPER, WOOD,
MARBLE, IRON & STEEL

The building is rich in materials and detail, with original features including a magnificent copper lift, windows and doors framed in oringial steel work, Jarrah woodwork, tiled signage on the entry and wrought iron balustrades featuring the Royal Insurance monogram.

JARRAH WAINSCOT

 

The walls of The Heritage Wine Bar are framed by an original Jarrah wainscot.

 

The original builders dyed the handsomely coloured wood, the intention to create the appearance of the wood being

almost uniform in colour.

 

Untouched Jarrah ranges in the tone of its wood, from pink to sepia to almost orange. Now expertly restored the wood characters are allowed to come through.

HANDCRAFTED PEWTER BAR

 

An extraordinary feature; the hand crafted pewter bar comes from Atelier Nectoux in France where three generations maintain the tradition, style and process of this fading craft. Iconic in Europe and America for the period 1900 to 1930.

 

​The bar top weighs 2 tonnes alone, shipped in segments and then installed onsite. Requiring a reinforced foundation to be mounted,

it's well worth the effort.

CHANDELIERS

 

Designed in 1851 by Frenchman, Leon Foucault, his eponymous Foucault Pendulum was one of the first instruments to demonstrate the rotation of the earth.

 

The Chandeliers installed at The Heritage Wine Bar are inspired by this experiment.

HARLEQUIN FLOOR

 

A black and white marble floor in a Harlequin themed pattern is a striking new addition to the building and ties in with the original marble work of the thoroughfare arches.
