No. 7 Penfolds Marquee

GLO_VisCandy14_7_PEN

Penfolds Marquee at Flemington was a landscaped tableau from the South Australian Barossa Valley. The Artist Sarah Hendy painted her vision of a Barossa Valley landscape in a mural of “Kalimina” that ran the 15m width of the marquee and up into the clouds of the ceiling liner.

The 8m long brass topped, black timber veneer bar sat in a lowered ceiling environment. The back wall to the bar featured brass Penfolds bin numbers “Numbers are extraordinary” that were backlit with exposed Edison globes that inspired the timber clad walls & floors to glow with warmth.

Cecelia Fox created voluminous South Australian inspired arrangements of wild blood red roses combined with Australian natives, sitting in custom made large clay vessels throughout the marquee.

Banquettes & side chairs were adorned with luxurious velvet cushions in Blood red, dusky pinks and sage greens highlighting the colours of the natural Barossa Valley landscape
