The extension is of the existing hotel building and four abutting cottages. The two-storey Victorian Tudor hotel, made of rendered limestone, was built from 1858 to 1864 as the governor’s summer residence.

Hotel Rottnest will nearly double in size as part of the redevelopment, with an extra 80 rooms to be constructed.

The expansion will increase the resort’s size to almost 18,000 square metres.

The building is listed on the state heritage list, as is the surrounding site – which is part of the Thompson Bay Settlement. The area is set within the Whadjuk people’s traditional lands and is also listed on the Aboriginal Heritage Sites Register.

According to the architects, the proposed design respects the cultural significance of the Thompson Bay Settlement, delivering an “appropriately scaled” building with height and setback in line with the surrounding development.

West Australian Government hoping it will help attract new and old visitors to the island.

The $40 million redevelopment will see more “top-end” rooms become available, as well as additional “affordable” accommodation

  • Client Name: Christou Design Group
  • Duration: 2019-2020
  • Location:  Rottnest Island (off the coast of WA)
  • Project Costs: $40M
