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.
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 also feature a refurbished bar facility and bi-fold doors to a balcony overlooking Hindmarsh Square.
Llewellyn Wyeth, GM of Pullman Adelaide, said that the soon-to-be enhanced conferencing space will reflect the hotel’s repositioning as a luxury hotel and will be a unique conferencing and event space in the Adelaide market given the outlook from the function spaces to Hindmarsh Square and beyond.
“The unique aspect from our top floor function space is the amazing views across Hindmarsh Square, now that the meeting rooms will benefit from this aspect via the new glazed façade, the space will be perfectly suited to business events and meetings, whilst capturing the ambience and design qualities suitable for personable functions such as weddings and celebrations.
