Creating a unique, multiple-award-winning luxury hotel in an established heritage location

A heritage site and functioning winery, the Willow Creek Winery has some of the oldest vines on the Mornington Peninsula. When we were brought in to consult on the construction of a luxury hotel and swimming pool—as well as restaurant and functions centre—the design was a challenge.

Sensitive construction practices were required to ensure that there was no damage to the vines and that all heritage requirements were met. Plus, with limited existing infrastructure, the design had to be very detailed and efficient to make sure operational requirements were met for all services. In particular, extra attention was given to the water reuse systems. Our work included civil, electrical, mechanical, and structural engineering as well as lighting, acoustics, and vibration design.

With the addition of the boutique hotel, swimming pool, restaurant, and function’s centre, Willow Creek Winery has reset the benchmark for glamour in the Shire of Mornington Peninsula.
