Shorehouse Addition



Shorehouse Addition


The new addition to the Shorehouse Lounge at Pumphouse Point provides guests with a much-needed expansion of communal spaces. The building connects to the original structure via a minimal glazed linkway, leaving as much of its fabric in place as possible. Dark, tinted glass, cement sheet and stained-timber cladding blend with the natural surroundings to create a recessive element, which allows the original Shorehouse to be clearly interpreted.

The building was prefabricated in Hobart and brought to site in two parts, limiting on-site disturbance to both the environment and guests, whilst avoiding building in the harsh winter weather. The interiors draw inspiration from the immediate environment and industrial heritage, providing a rich range of furnishings to immerse guests into their surroundings. Timber ceilings, rich custom joinery and furnishings showcase local artisans, creating a warm and intriguing space to further enrich the guest experience of this unique venture.
