Rydges Parramatta

Hotel Refurbishment, hotel rooms, lobby areas, reception, function and conference rooms, 5,000m2, Sydney, Australia

Rydges Parramatta is a 4 star business and leisure hotel in Sydney, Australia. The 198 room hotel is located adjacent to the cities famous Rosehill gardens Racecourse. Set over 6 levels in an existing building, the hotel refurbishment comprised of superior king and queen, suite and twin room designs, as well as apartments.

We treated the interiors in a classic, neutral palette and added warmth with timbers, lighting and texture. We drew inspiration from the racecourse locale by injecting a playful array of coloured geometric patterns in the loose textiles/cushions etc.

The bathrooms are deliberately left austere not to interfere with the guests experience of dressing up for a day at the races, where the focus is their own attire, rather than the interior. The design was further extended into the lobby, conference and function room areas. In these areas, the existing base build architecture and features were retained and freshened.

We designed artwork that was then manufactured into bespoke broadloom carpet. Muted tones and colour within a geometric pattern linking the public areas and rooms.
