colonial brewery

The renovation and extension of Colonial Brewery in Margaret River required greater brewing capacity, as well as a compete redesign of the venues beer hall restaurant and the addition of an outdoor bar and alfresco dining area. bradleycole also obtained an extension liquor licensing trading hours and numbers.

Most of the existing building was gutted including the brewhouse and a new tank farm, grain silo, and a freestanding boiler room and cool storage facility added. Transport access and services were also upgraded.

The beer hall restaurant was redesigned to be more intimate and reflect the locality and heart of the brand. The new owners had recently purchased a large selection of recycled local timbers that they wanted included in the design. These were used for posts, beams and window mullions as well as lining the front of the two bars.

The existing ceiling was replaced with arched timber vaults to help reduce reflective sound and soften the space. The new cladding of black steel straps over bands of timber throughout the beer hall is a simple abstraction of old timber beer kegs.

The project also included a complete revamped of the commercial kitchen, and new hard landscaping and a stage area for live music.
