Citigate Hotel, Perth, Western Australia by Woodhead Architects
Located in the heart of Perth’s entertainment and restaurant district, the Citigate Hotel has unveiled a dynamic new look.
Designed by Woodhead for Mirvac Hotels and Resorts, the design team have accomplished a spectacular refurbishment of the hotel’s public zones, achieved within the confines of a modest $9 million dollar budget.
Woodhead was commissioned to provide design services for the refurbishment of the ground floor including the lobby, porte cochere, Encore Restaurant, function rooms and West End Bar. Each area is designed to express a contemporary and sophisticated “Perth look and feel”.
Additional works also included the upgrade of guest rooms, corridors and lift lobbies to the guest room floors, suites and the roof terrace including a pool deck and surrounds.
The design pallet was developed through a selection of contemporary furniture, fittings and finishes creating a fresh ambience appropriate for an executive hotel of this calibre. The lobby design aspires to create a sense of arrival that is sophisticated, welcoming and comfortable.
Colour and materials, together with the application of local flora and native cultural elements within the graphic, hint at the cultural contexts of the spaces establishing mix of heritage and contemporary urban chic.
The Citigate Perth is a four star, 275 room hotel catering primarily to business clientele and short term urban tourists.
