South Terrace HotelMOTEL
Studio Nine Architects
Client Project Manager:
Our Adelaide team completed an extensive six-month refurbishment of HotelMOTEL in Adelaide’s South Terrace, unveiling a fresh take on the classic motel, strategically minimising downtime, and allowing our client to capitalise on the boom in regional travel within Australia.
The project included the upgrade of the existing 61 motel rooms, completely stripping back the original 1950s building to its structural shell, installing all-new services, replacing all internal facades as well as an external activation along the South Terrace frontage, creating visual impact from the street.
Stunningly designed by Studio Nine Architects who drew reference from the original motel features and inspiration from the South Australian landscape. The rooms feature a native palette of blues, oranges and walnut tones, with an emphasis on including locally produced products.
With a breadth of experience in the hotel industry across Australia, we understand the quality and safety requirements at every stage of the projects and are experts in planning works within live environments and minimising downtime for our clients so they can continue daily operations. This refurbishment is part of a larger master plan for the hotel precinct formerly known as South Terrace Motel & The Chifley Hotel with our team now starting works on phase 2 of the project – watch this space!
