Pier One unveils the last touches of its $15m transformation

It’s been a five-year project, but Pier One Sydney Harbour has unveiled the final results of its $15 million transformation.

All the rooms and suites have been transformed by architects Tonkin Zulaikha Greer and interior designer Jack Milenkovic, who have paid homage to its waterfront setting and marine history.

“Room objects are elevated from the floor, lit by ambient soft hues, to create a floating effect and sense of space and maintain the maritime inspiration throughout each room,” said Tim Greer, principal of Tonkin Zulaika Greer.

“We wanted to celebrate the view, with every item in a room taking cue from the waterside location; deep blue hues in armchairs, exposed strongbacks and beams, soft linens, wood finishings and mirrors carefully positioned to give guests always-on harbour views.”

New touches include Archie Rose spirits in the mini-bars and signature bathroom amenities from Melbourne’s Hunter Lab.

“We are thrilled to invite guests to experience this design transformation of all of our rooms,” said Pier One Sydney Harbour general manager Kim Mahaffy.

“We are Sydney’s most historic and pre-eminent lifestyle hotel, with a luxurious, yet accessible offering for guests looking for a distinctively Sydney experience right on Sydney Harbour.”
