An A$1 million (US$678,400) refurbishment of the top floor function and events space at the Pullman Adelaide Hotel has been given the green light, with works set to commence next month.
Owner, Hines Property, engaged global design studio, Woods Bagot, for the project and appointed Shape as lead contractor.
Rosina Di Maria, principal at Woods Bagot, said: â€śThe centrepiece of the redesign will be the incorporation of glazing to the function spaces that will allow panoramic views across Hindmarsh Square, the city and towards Adelaide Hills.
â€śThe design concept to update Pullman Adelaide celebrates the hotelâ€™s unique location â€“ which is almost entirely bordered by parklands â€“ by taking inspiration from the detailed architectural and cultural elements of the city and the Botanic Gardens,â€ť concluded Di Maria.
The 15th floor will receive a complete makeover, including new wall coverings, extensive use of stone, custom flooring, specialist lighting and state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment.
The main ballroom, capable of hosting functions for up to 400 attendees, and divisible into up to four smaller rooms, will be upgraded, as well as the unique corner boardroom. The rooms will benefit from the latest audio-visual technology and lighting controls.
The pre-function space will feature a refurbished bar facility and bi-fold doors to a balcony overlooking Hindmarsh Square.
This refurbishment is part of the five-star repositioning of the property, since its rebranding from a Crowne Plaza into a Pullman Hotels & Resorts brand.
