Project summary

The Belvedere is located at Woody Point a small bayside suburb on the southern tip of the Redcliffe Peninsula.

KP Architects were engaged to restore and transform the Hotel into a place for locals and visitors as a destination to enjoy the idyllic location by introducing a series of dining spaces that would take advantage of the bay views.

The design strategy focused on removing the many layers of poorly considered additions over the 120 years of the Hotel to reveal the original fabric.

Sympathetic interventions were integrated to establish a clear portrait between old and new, defining a timeline for future observations.

To enhance the experience, a central courtyard space was introduced to shape a sense of arrival, allowing the customer to orientate themselves while visually engaging with the bay view beyond.

Introducing more open spaces has resulted in a building that breathes, embracing Queensland subtropical climate.
