The design of a $50 million new world-class visitors centre, microbrewery and whisky distillery for Coopers Brewery at their Regency Park home
The design narrative is a simple continuation of the Coopers brand — bridging hospitality and industry through history.
Collaborating with studio-gram on the interior design, the new development will comprise of a restaurant and bar, tasting facilities, outdoor plaza, microbrewery, whisky distillery and underground stillage for whisky maturation. Connecting back to the main brewery facility, an elevated glazed bridge will also house an interactive Coopers history display, revealing the story of the iconic brand to visitors and physically embodying the project narrative.
The circular plan is inspired by the vessels of the brewery and the rondel of the famous Coopers label. This distinctive, singular elevated form will be identifiable from flightpaths — which is anticipated to be an important addition to South Australia’s tourism portfolio, attracting domestic and international travellers.
