Bathers Beach House

Type: Hospitality & Leisure
Location: Fremantle
Budget: 5 Million
Status: Completed 2014

Bathers Beach House is a renovation of the Fishermen’s Co-Op in Fremantle. The original structure presented an Art Deco facade to the city but turned its back on the beach, subsequent renovations have left the building without a clear and legible built form. Bathers Beach House sees MJA strip away the carbuncles of previous additions and trace the perimeter with a unifying colonnade which references the original buildings period.

The ground floor seeks to provide the same cool relief that one can experience under a beachside cliff overhang whilst the upstairs provides the sensation of being on top of that cliff. A multi-layered operable facade on the west allows for views and for both spaces to open up and become deep terrace spaces.
