Coopers Brewery Visitors Centre
The design of a $50 million new world-class visitors centre, microbrewery and whisky distillery for Coopers Brewery at their Regency Park site.
Studio Nine developed a strong narrative for the project, a simple continuation of how Coopers ‘bridge hospitality and industry through history’. 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 travelers.
