New Brighton RSA Billiards Room
This small extension to the New Brighton RSA Billiards Room is utterly delightful. It is evident that there was a great personal investment by the architects, builders and RSA members to see the project to fruition. Despite the limited budget, no detail was left unconsidered, with beautiful light fittings, custom-made by the architects, nooks for elbows to lean or drinks to be placed, and even an ocular window to allow the setting sun to track across the space. The ‘folded room’ lined with recycled rimu is a celebration both of the game of billiards and those that play it here.
