Rohrig recently completed the major refurbishment of the 134-year-old heritage-listed Jubilee Hotel, in Brisbane, transforming the iconic venue into an inviting, spacious and architecturally exquisite pub.
The hotel underwent 40 weeks of renovation works, involving extensive internal and structural demolition, restoration of the heritage façade, and a new beer garden offering nearly twice the usable space. We completed all works while ensuring minimal disruptions to the adjoining commercial building that sits above the hotel.
Architecture for the renovation was undertaken by Blight Rayner, who achieved a unique balance of heritage and contemporary design.
We also provided our life-size 1:1 mock-up service of the BOH operational areas for the client, which led to minor functional design changes.
We extended the footprint of the venue and the result was an impressive 1500sqm of new space and 800sqm of refurbished heritage space.
The star of the renovation is the beer garden and courtyard, featuring translucent roofing and seven diagrids, each with private booths, with façade glazing used to separate the structures.
A unique feature of the renovation is a custom designed kitchen hood that sits high above the floor and is incorporated into the ceiling space to provide an open-plan kitchen layout.
Doors opened on 11 November for the reborn Jubilee Hotel that was delivered before the end of 2022 despite various setbacks and complexities.
