Situated in the heart Bunbury’s town centre, the Rose Hotel is amongst the oldest buildings found in the precinct.

The cultural objectives for this project were to improve connectivity  and bring the community together throughout the diverse spaces. These spaces included a restaurant area, a bar area, a garden bar area and a private function room.

A key aspect for the revitalisation of the hotel was the preservation of the hotels federation type architecture. The refurbishment introduced a new pallet of materials that were worked with, not against, the existing.
