The eve of Thursday 20 February 2020 was one of conviviality, celebration, and friendly competition, courtesy of Polytec and friends.

Having a calendar of evenings free of work-related events was nice while it lasted, but it’s just as nice to see the architecture and design scene of Sydney ramping up for 2020.
In the spirit of the new year – and a new decade – Polytec, Milliken, CSM, James Richardson Furniture, Talostone, and Diverse Products Agency had the splendid idea to bring the community together to reconvene over some beverages and bowls. With the weather still warm, the days still long, and the calendar not yet overpacked, the timing could not have been more opportune.
Bondi Bowling Club was humming with an atmosphere of conviviality and friendly competition as architects, designers, and suppliers caught up with colleagues and acquaintances. Steve Morrison Jazz brought about an air of frivolity and fun, with the jazz trio adorned in whatever they could find in the costume box, while their funky, soulful tunes reverberated through the coastal surrounds.
To those who were there, it was wonderful to see your friendly faces! And to those who couldn’t make it, feel free to live vicariously through the pics!
