ARTHOUSE HOTEL

PROGRAM

Fitout of existing historic building – formerly the Sydney School of Arts as an hotel and restaurant. The project is spread over three levels with basement storage and cellaring facilities. The existing building was refurbished as part of the Citibank development on the corner of Pitt  and Park Streets in the Sydney CBD.

DESIGN

The challenges involved in building bar and kitchen facilities within the existing historic envelope are many. The essence of any intervention in an historic context is scale. Thus a high level of detail is used to proportion new elements to the existing structure. Through this strategy, modern elements can be harmonious with the old.
