Six Degrees is a vibrant new Bar, Restaurant and Hotel on Albany's historic Stirling Terrace. The former Royal George Hotel has undergone a number of renovations over the past 100 years, and still retains its original heritage character and charm. New openings and windows were added to the facades to create a contemporary contrast to the heritage fabric, and to activate the adjoining Laneway as a beer garden and courtyard. Large structural steel beams were cut into the 500mm thick walls, and were left exposed to highlight the structural elements and provide an industrial theme to the space.
Alterations and additions to a State Registered Heritage building to convert a workshop and Caretaker’s residence into a high end restaurant and destination Cafe. With panoramic views of the harbour and coastline, the building maximises glazing and seating in the new addition, and highlights the double volume existing shed space where the loft mezzanine was removed.
RATS BAR + BAY MERCHANTS
Alterations and refurbishment of a former Deli and short stay accomodation units to create a destination Cafe, Fine Food and Wine outlet together with a boutique wine bar. The bar makes reference to the existing building with exposed brick walls left untouched throughout.
NAKED BEAN COFFEE ROASTERS
Alterations and additions to a former petrol station and workshop to create a coffee roasting outlet and coffee distribution centre together with a vibrant cafe on Middleton Road.
YORK STREET CAFE
The York Street Café project is the refurbishment of a typical York Street shop to create a 'City Style' café in the heart of Albany. The flexible layout and design enables the café to function effectively in the varying Albany climate.
ALBANY HOSPITAL CAFE
The new Albany Hospital Cafe- Well Bean Cafe, was designed to operate in a pre-determined and small footprint within the Hospital. The fit out was delivered on a tight timeframe and provides a warm, welcoming and relaxing environment for visitors, staff and patients in the facility.
The Lakehouse is a popular winery in the Denmark region, and the alterations and additions to the space allowed for expansion and increased space for production and storage, whilst minimising the impact on this iconic tourist attraction. The dining and retail areas were expanded to attract tourism, sales and dining to the existing winery.
The Balneaire Seaside Resort is a sensitive beachside development nestled amongst the peppermint trees at the foot of Mt Adelaide near Middleton Beach. The two storey accommodation units cluster around tastefully landscaped Mediterranean style courtyards to create a calm, sophisticated holiday destination.
The Albany Waterfront Interpretation project is focussed on the site of the former Albany Town Jetty and adjacent foreshore. The Jetty was demolished as part of the development. Our vision was to create a project with a strong community focus and ownership and one that utilised elements from the demolition of the old jetty. To achieve this aim, in consultation with LandCorp we purposely set about assembling a team of mostly Great Southern consultants, artists and artisans that encompassed a wide range of creative skills.
The Three Anchors Restaurant involved a 'make over' of a tired beachfront restaurant and kiosk. The refurbished facility now has a bar, restaurant, kiosk, meeting room and gallery space. It also features an alfresco area that takes advantage of its unique location on Middleton Beach.
