In one sense the designer was already a winner before construction of this iconic Northbridge building commenced. D4 Design was the successful tenderer in a City of Perth design competition ahead of many of Perth’s leading Architects proving once again, the worth of an open competitive process for such competitions.

A complex brief including having to deal with not only the City of Perth but the Tenants, the landlord, 26 consultants and multiple state and local government authorities made for a challenging design process. The outcome is an outstanding building on the northern end of the Northbridge Plaza. It houses a working 12 hectolitre micro- brewery giving the interiors an excitingly complex industrial aesthetic with all the brewing pipework and kettles exposed. A rich mix of industrial materials such as glass, steel copper, raw concrete and recycled bricks take their cues from the sites industrial history providing a relaxed and unpretentious backdrop for a welcoming space.
