A $1 million refurbishment of the top floor function and events space at the Pullman Adelaide Hotel has been given the go ahead, with works set to begin next month.
“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,” said Rosina Di Maria, principal at Woods Bagot, which is overseeing the project.
“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.”
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 also benefit from the latest audio-visual technology and lighting controls.
The pre-function space will feature a refurbished bar facility and bifold doors to a balcony overlooking Hindmarsh Square.
“We are excited to be embarking on this new project with our hotel owner, Hines Property, and we are looking forward to welcoming new business to enjoy our brand-new seamless conferencing facilities from early 2020,” said Llewellyn Wyeth, Pullman Adelaide’s general manager.
