Matso's Eumundi is an 1000m2 adaptive reuse hospitality project designed by our studio, commencing onsite in June 2023. The project received planning permission in March of 2023 and is being built by Hutchinson's Builders. 

In late 2021 we were approached by Matsos to design their new Queensland outpost. The Western Australian brewery famous for their mango and ginger beers is planning a new home at legendary Joe's Waterhole.

The project sees restoration of the 1920's timber and tin pub, as well as the demolition of various water-damaged additions to make way for a new brewery, bistro and landscape to the rear of the pub. The new addition is made of 4 gable-roofed pavilions which echo the proportions of the heritage listed pub and provide a legible and adaptable 'shed' for future generations.

The design seeks to regenerate the extensive garden to the rear of the site and to connect this garden to the street. A full survey of salvadable demolition material has been undertaken with new works primarily built from these recycled materials. As part of the project, we plan to hold a number of community workshops to recover onsite timbers, and will aim to rework existing furniture for reuse.

Thanks to our legendary client and consultant team, including the talented Knight Wilson who’ve partnered with us on our architectural team.
