Capella Sydney Officially Opens

Category: Completed Projects
The recent opening of Capella Sydney in Circular Quay marks the revitalisation of one of Sydney’s most remarkable sandstone buildings into a hotel. Located in the Sandstones Precinct amongst a collection of heritage buildings in the CBD's north, the new hotel blends state-of-the-art amenities with craft and elegance.

Our principal role was to work closely with the City of Sydney to create a sensitive transformation of Farrer Place – the building’s forecourt which has a distinctive mix of heritage interpretation, public amenity, and horticulture.

Our design also involved a collaboration with Make and Bar to create a luxurious indoor oasis with lush greenery and dramatic green walls that creates a sense of calm and serenity. In the building's public atrium natural light filters through the tall atrium windows onto the urban canopy of flourishing trees and planters, creating a biophilic experience that draws guests closer to nature.

It has been a significant honour to continue to guide the transformation of Circular Quay’s public spaces. Last year was a huge milestone as we saw the completion of the newest urban precinct, Quay Quarter Lanes, and now the latest development, Capella Sydney, will bring a fresh new chapter to the city North district.

We are thrilled to see this iconic landmark come to life and provide guests with a unique experience of culture, character, and luxury.
