Coolum Hotel & Dan Murphy’s
New hotel, bottle shop and beer garden
This Rohrig project involved demolishing the old hotel and bottle shop before redeveloping new ones with a car-park.
The new hotel, designed by Cayas Architects, featured a curved external façade and internal timber battens on a curved ceiling to resemble the ocean waves. The beer garden and lounge area had outdoor showers for those coming from the beach into the hotel.
Our advice to the client and architect helped ensure materials to endure in the salty, ocean-side location.
We exceeded our own ambitious staging plans in order to open the hotel in time for Christmas, ahead of its mid-January scheduled completion.
