The Deck Child’s Play, Brighton

The Deck in bayside Melbourne is an expansive 700 sqm multi-functional venue with a private internal function area, capped by a café and event space at one street entrance and a modern event space and play zone for children at the other.

The rear entry opens to the event function space that is purposefully designed with a young teenage client in mind. Bright pops of colour on joinery, a feature netted curtain and neon signage instantly define a fun customisable space suitable for all kinds of events, while inset bench seats under coloured archways provide space for capturing the perfect Instagram moment.

In contrast the bold design of the function space, the children’s play zone features a bright, fresh pastel colour scheme with timber-look vinyl flooring and individually-themed timber hut structures designed to activate a child’s imagination and creativity.

Paired back finishes and the practical design create an inherently calming and relaxed atmosphere, allowing parents to catch up with friends in the café seating provided while children play.
