ARCHITECTURE

RAG TRADE WAREHOUSE LOOK

Originally built in 1938 as a warehouse for the rag trade, the building’s simple and elegant design received its first makeover in 1989 by architects Denton Corker Marshall. It opened in 1993 as a minimalist 34-room boutique hotel, the first of its kind in Australia, complete with private rooftop club, restaurant, and a suspended pool. Adelphi’s latest facelift, in 2014, retains the building’s signature warehouse style with metal windows and a concrete façade.

INDUSTRIAL WITH A SIDE OF SWEET

“The colors and textures of the hotel are all based on desserts,” says designer Fady Hachem. “But it's not weird. It's not too out there. It's very comfortable and done subtly.” Taking its cue from the former Denton Corker Marshall-designed hotel, the spiky, edgy character of its original incarnation has been retained in this update’s industrial elements, while a layer of whimsical, confection-inspiration provides an engaging contrast.
