Prahran Hotel restaurant, Melbourne, Australia

Large, stacked concrete 'pipes' not only provide a striking update to the Art Deco façade but also create a series of cosy spaces within.

The only drama you'd normally expect from a visit to the local pub occurs when someone has had a single malt too many. Not at this local watering hole, which has been sensationally transformed by Melbourne-based firm Techné Architects. Large, stacked concrete 'pipes' not only provide a striking update to the Art Deco façade but also create a series of cosy spaces within.

Lined with recycled spotted gum slats and featuring leather banquettes, the booths each seat up to 12 guests. Vertical gardens, a soaring glass atrium and a bar made from salvaged pipes up the theatrics. Despite the space's stylish transformation, the comestibles remain true to the venue's roots as a local meeting spot - beer-battered fish and chips, good steaks and a range of burgers - with craft beers and ciders filling most glasses. On Friday afternoons, the barmen tap a Karma Keg, where patrons pay a donation for each glass, with the proceeds going towards community projects and small charities. – Carrie Hutchinson
