Concrete Sewer Pipes transformed into dining space at Prahran Hotel, Australia

Remember ‘The TuboHotel’ made from concrete drains pipes in Mexico City which we featured here last year? Taking inspiration from this eco conscious and one of a kind project, Techne Architects have come up with something similar in the Prahran district of Melbourne, Australia.

The project team of Techne Architects has given a face-lift to the Prahran Hotel in Melbourne by adding an extension made out of concrete sewer pipes. The makeover was completed in May which not only added to the beauty of the place but also increased the pub’s capacity.

The upper pipes comprises of small gardens and balconies while the interiors of the pipes features tables and booths draped in rich wood palette.
