modern-eclectic-hotel-bedroom celing modern-eclectic-hotel-the bar restaurantRead recently; an article about the restoration of two historic buildings in Sydney Australia. The State Theatre, and the Gowings department store, in the down town Sydney core. The opening of a new design hotel marked the culmination of the renovation of these two buildings, joining them as one entity. The transformation of these iconic pre-war buildings is remarkable! The State Theatre building was originally opened to the public in 1929. The Art Deco and Venetian influenced State Theatre and the Gothic; Palazzo style of the Gowings buildings have been restored to their pre-war architecture, even to retention of the Gargoyles!
The 200 suite hotel has retained it’s historic influences; eclectic accessories, combined with modern design; while retaining the unique historic architectural features; such as ceiling mouldings; while offering high speed internet, luxurious bedding, & over-sized soaker tubs. Each hotel room having its own unique features. Feature; the hand held room numbers on each door, a typically Art Deco hand holding the room number.Very quirky! Love it! I really must commend the designers for their transformation of these two iconic buildings in the down town core of Sydney Australia. Originally featured by Freshome,

I simply had to share this article, and add some of my own comments about the design and eclectic nature of the architecture; well done ….enjoy….
