Tathra Hotel Restoration
It was time to restore the iconic landmark and heritage listed Tathra Hotel. The hotel consisted of the original 1880 building along with various additions made in the 1960s and then in the early 2000's.
The new design by Sue Connor Architects, focuses on natural and raw materials such as recycled timber, stone, exposed steel structures and glass. The design also considers the close proximity to the coastline, historic wharf and existing street presence.
Including boutique accommodation, a bistro, a stage area and full acoustic panelling, future plans also include a microbrewery.
Environmental initiatives included reuse of building materials, use of local materials, an energy efficient hot water system, performance glazing, solar panels, low energy lighting, 20,000L of rainwater tanks for water reuse (in areas such as the micro-brewery), plus worm farms for wastage and recycling policies.
