As part of the 5-star repositioning of the Pullman Adelaide Hotel, the top floor function and events space will undergo a major AUD$1 million upgrade, commencing December 2019, and important milestone for the hotel since transitioning to Accor’s Pullman Hotels & Resorts brand, from Crowne Plaza, late in 2017.
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.
Following its upgrade, the top floor will provide a premier function and events space for Adelaide, benefitting from the 5-star service and contemporary food and beverage offering of Pullman Hotels & Resorts.
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 “The centrepiece of the re-design will be the incorporation of glazing to the function spaces that will allow panoramic views across Hindmarsh Square, the city and towards Adelaide Hills.
“The design concept to update Pullman Adelaide celebrates the hotel’s unique location – which is almost entirely bordered by parklands – by taking inspiration from the detailed architectural and cultural elements of the city and the Botanic Gardens,” concluded Rosina.
