The Modus Operandi brewery reimagines the Australian shed through the repurposing of a post-war portal frame structure and the tieing of it with a newly constructed interfacing mechanism, bridging between itself and neighbour lots.
This is the first purpose-built space for the brewing company and was predicated around their ‘Beaches Brewed’ motto along with the notion of Modus Operandi – the mode of working of the brand, the act of brewing, and the social connections that entail.
The resultant space provides a protected, adaptive building that glows differently depending on time of day, safeguards native species of plants, and showcases them as a protective, cosseting response to the increasing ephemerality of our natural world. The space portrays a feeling of artificial nature, achieved through highly natural mechanisms. This technical approach to the showcase of nature echoes the clients modus operandi: highlighting the raw natural material that is turned into their brews.
