Driven X Design Awards Crown


We are happy to announce that our Kingpin Crown Entertainment Complex is the winner of the 2017 Melbourne Design Awards Silver Award for Interior Design – Retail. After being booked in for a royal makeover towards the end of 2016 we took up the challenge to turn our Crown venue into a world class entertainment destination, we are very happy to be recognised amongst our peers and to have taken out this award for the first time!

Check out what Drive x Design had to say about our venue:

"This right royal make-over included a complete re-brand and multi-million-dollar renovation. The refurbished Kingpin is a premium entertainment destination, architecturally designed with three licensed bars, three food zones, redesigned bowling lanes, high-end event spaces, state of the art laser tag arena and sensory-overload arcade games area.

The creative zone names identify spaces and their uses. The Hub – the core of the experience where friends eat, drink and relax at the centre of the entertainment. Suspended from the ceiling are 3000 LED-lit bowling pins. Room 300, named after the perfect bowling score - a cocktail bar featuring live entertainment & private event space. Pins Royale -an exclusive VIP space with mahogany bowling lanes, designer shoes, private karaoke, pool table and butler service. The visually stunning space clad with over 30,000 hand-dipped gold dowels, tipped with light, gives the impression of being under the branches of a beautifully-lit tree.

The biggest challenge was designing a venue that incorporated the ‘WOW’ factor and visual appeal to target a millennial audience, while incorporating functional use of the space. This was the first venue to receive the royal makeover and working closely with builders and designers to, not only understand, but incorporate that flawlessly was pertinent to the success of this venue."

Crown was the second of our venue to win a Driven x Design award in 2017, with our North Strathfield venue also taking out the Silver Award in the Interior Design – Hospitality category.
