Ovolo, Woolloomooloo

The design of this space was something different from the normal hotel environment.

The public spaces were shaped into small intimate areas in which guests could enjoy time inside the hotel itself. The guestrooms were designed to respect the heritage culture within the building and were upgraded through new dark paint colours, new bathroom fixtures, vanities and new lighting and joinery.

Our team also installed a new composite decking around the pool areas with timber walls and LED feature lighting throughout.  All public bathrooms and change rooms were also upgraded with new cubicles, wall cladding, tiles, vanities and bathroom fixtures.

The level 1.5 area, which was still in the same state when originally built, was transformed into an event space which boasts three conference rooms with operable walls so that events of different sizes can be catered to.
