Coogee Hotel Redevelopment
Months to build
- Existing Structure Works
- Environmentally Sustainable Design
With over 120 years of history within the walls, the heritage-listed Coogee Hotel was previously used as a seaside honeymoon destination, a home for orphans, an unregistered racecourse, and a post office throughout WW11. It was of utmost importance that we maintained the integrity of the building during the works while respecting its extensive history.
The project involved the conversion of the existing building into a new bar, restaurant, and community kitchen. We were able to retain the original character of the building by re-using a range of materials such as recycled concrete, timber from the old dingo mill, and aged and recycled jarrah roof frames. This process provided a modern look to the building while maintaining its history.
Additional works included the construction of a commercial kitchen, washroom facilities, a feature rammed-earth wall to the new outdoor dining extension, a new car park, refurbished floorboards and ceilings throughout, and upgraded electrical, mechanical, and hydraulic services.
