nettletontribe worked closely with the Panthers, Port Macquarie to reposition the club to appeal to a new demographic. Port Macquarie is a growing regional centre with plenty of healthy competition for club membership.
nettletontribe listened carefully to the business strategies of the club and looked to renovate the main entry point, 1500 seat auditorium, alfresco gaming and bar located on the river front. The overaching theme of “industrial fisheries” touches each of the renovated spaces.
The central circulation with its soaring ceiling line is framed by a new anodized aluminium feature screen. Comprising of various shades representing the nets on the fishing trawlers, new planters and street lights define of the central space. The gaming room was renovated to appeal to the members and their guests and the alfresco gaming was more than doubled on the eastern facade. The alfresco gaming enjoys fixed louvres and access to the sky, large feature fans and feature mural wall to the west. The jewel in the crown for Panthers Port Macquarie is now the refurbished bar to the river front, catering to the craft beer demographic and their families, large sweeping decks with ample shading ensure this bar offering is a destination of choice in Port Macquarie.
