Adding to their list of achievements, The Millett Group, a family-owned hospitality and tourism business, recently opened Byron Bay’s newest boutique accommodation offering, The Surf House. Formerly the Byron Council Chambers, this unique venue combines the quality service of a hotel with the laid back vibe of a hostel. It's conveniently located in the heart of bustling Byron Bay, just a short stroll from Main Beach.
“The Surf House effortlessly combines the building’s original architecture with modern design to bring guests a one-of-a-kind accommodation experience”
Holy Cow! Creative was once again engaged by The Millett Group to create the branding and environmental design for this new hospitality venue.
The crisp, typographic logo uses modern lettering with a nautical colour palette to provide the brand with a fresh, beachside aesthetic.
The eclectic environmental installations include Australian surfing ephemera, collectables and imagery to convey a relaxed, vintage surfing vibe.
We sourced over 100 pieces of iconic memorabilia from across the country. We then transformed the bar and common areas into a tribute to local surf culture, with particular focus on the laid back summers of the 1960’s.
“California cool that inspires moodboards and sets Instagrammer hearts aflutter.”
We also designed neon signage and adorned walls with framed photographic installations that take you on a journey through Byron Bay, its surrounds and its history.
The space is colourful, unique and was a whole lot of fun to bring to life. Did we mention that it boasts Byron Bay’s only rooftop bar?!?
