Challenge

The Mounties Group approached WMK to refurbish and reposition ‘Mounties’ which boasts the highest membership of any club in the state.

 

Working within an operating club environment, reinventing the primary arrival and entry point was the first project in the overall strategic master plan. 

 

 

The new design was to inject an international hotel flavour while capturing the essence of the Mounties brand.

Solution

This significant project brought our architecture and interior teams together. WMK developed a master plan for Mounties to ensure the new foyer and port cochere related to future works.

 

Drawing on our extensive hotel expertise, WMK worked closely with Mounties, Paynter Dixon, Pure Projects, and MPA to create an arrival experience that evokes a luxury hotel rather than a typical community club.

 

 

Vibrantly lit, the sweeping port cochere makes a grand statement on arrival. Guests step into the double-height lobby and are greeted with a rich finishes palette, bespoke fixtures and fittings, and custom lighting designed to reference the Mounties logo.

Outcome

WMK has repositioned the arrival experience for members and guests. The result creates a benchmark for clubs in Australia with its sophisticated hotel ambience.

 

The revitalised entry has set the standard for Mounties’ repositioning exercise and future projects, helping to attract a new generation and calibre of members.
