Straddie Brewing Co is a 3-storey mixed use brewery, Taproom/ restaurant and roof top bar with a single unit accommodation at Dunwich, North Stradbroke Island.
The building’s location welcomes people to Dunwich as it overlooks the main jetty and ferry terminal for the Island.
The design is a low impact, lightweight building taking advantage of the location and views and sympathetic to the natural and built environment of Dunwich.
The project is a focal point for the people of Dunwich, a meeting place and function area, to enjoy food, drink, views of Moreton Bay and local performances.
Large glass facades enable locals to look into the everyday functioning of the brewery. The openable glass panels also enable patrons in the brewery to look out onto the unique views from the site and allow for passive cooling removing the requirement of air-conditioning.
