The Harmony Park Hotel, in Surry Hills, is an adaptive reuse of the former Motor Traders building, breathing new life into an existing 2 storey brick warehouse building. The industrial fabric is left largely intact and houses retail and hospitality functions to help enliven an underutilised laneway. Two large courtyards spaces are carved out from the building which, combined with the considered landscape approach, provide a welcome ‘green’ relief to the dense urban context. The sculptural form of the new addition compliments the existing industrial fabric and is a fitting response to the tight laneway conditions, providing essential privacy to occupants and residents. There will be a total of 124 rooms with 2 retail spaces and lobby lounge area.
