New Life for Pinjarra’s Exchange Hotel

Exchange Hotel

The design of the new structures are lightweight and transparent to contrast with the mass and solidity of the existing brick heritage structures, creating a composition of solids and voids interwoven with bars, dining spaces, function rooms and a new kitchen.

The venue will have a capacity of 600 people spread across the internal and external spaces. The design has carefully planned the spaces to connect with a series of external courtyards and gardens enriching the connection to place and blurring the boundaries between inside and out.

Peeling back layers and finishes to reveal the past. Paying homage to its past, the interiors draws distinction between old and new whilst creating a seamless sequence of spaces both large and intimate.

Tuned to their specific context, each having a distinctive character, from the urban cloistered courtyard of the George Street arrival to the cascading landscape terraced gardens leading to the Bilya Maadjit (Murray River).
