Modern Asian Fusion Cuisine in exquisite garden surrounds
Nestled in the heart of the stunning Dandenong Ranges just 50km from the Melbourne CBD, the Olinda Tea House is a place like no other. A truly spectacular place which is sure to impress and inspire you and your guests, the Olinda Tea House is the ideal wedding venue accommodating small intimate group of 20 to 120 guests. With floor to ceiling windows & doors, your reception will overlook the lush green gardens and bush land backdrop. The bi-fold doors open up to the surrounding deck creating a seamless flow from the indoor reception onto the outdoor areas.
What makes the Teahouse so unqiue, is its distinctive architecture. Nestled on the corner of a seventeen acre flower farm, the Tea House is hidden from the main road. Once upon a time, a little tea room and nursery once stood in its place. Today, a floating butterfly roof sits atop large glazed walls engulfed by timber decking. This eco-friendly and award winning building is oriented to maximize north solar access and superb views down the valley. It has double glazed windows for heat retention and is built with bamboo flooring, compressed timber & recycled timber beams. Solar panels run along the rooftop to generate electricity
The butterfly roof was designed not only to complement the building’s natural forest setting, but to also allow for maximum light. Further, its form aids in the collection of rainwater and the harnessing of natural power from the solar panels. The balustrade panels feature laser-cut panels showing local Mount Dandenong imagery. Accessibility was key to the design, and the floor level allows easy access from the existing car park. The interior of the building is level and all decks and walkways are accessible by wheelchair.
