Hilton South Wharf – IDEA 2019

Hilton South Wharf

The Hilton South Wharf subverts the expectation of cautious design in internationally branded hotels and transcends the usual guest arrival experience. The starting point of the design philosophy is the surrounding area, with the rustication of the historical maritime context deliberately enhanced. Oversized warehouse timber trusses, lead red coated surfaces, cage-like light fittings, shipping relics fused with Dani Marti Brillo Pad and commissioned rope canvases all conspire to surpass the standards of this genre of hotel.
