St Andrews Beach Brewery

Ewert Leaf transformed a former equine training facility into the St Andrews Beach Brewery, a destination brewery with ocean views in Mornington, Australia.

  • Year 2017
  • Location Melbourne, Australia,
  • Horses have been replaced by hops at the St Andrews Beach Brewery on the Mornington Peninsula.

    The project brief called for an innovative change of use for the former equine training facility. It has now been transformed into a recreational and culinary destination for locals and tourists alike.

    The development features a full scale brewery, cellar door, tasting rooms, bar and a variety of indoor and alfresco seating for social gatherings, dining and large group functions.

    The unique site context is celebrated by utilizing existing structures such as the stables, which have been converted into seating zones. Natural materials, re-purposed from the site alongside earthy textures and raw metal details create a rich yet inviting ambiance, to complement the existing architecture.
