The highly anticipated new-look Dolphin Hotel is scheduled to re-open early this month. Maurice Terzini and his team have built on the iconic venue’s heritage, adding an exciting new layer to its history by repurposing and transforming the space with a modern perspective.

Regarded for decades as a Surry Hills institution synonymous with good times, The Dolphin Hotel now features three distinct spaces – a Dining Room, Wine Room and a Public Bar with an open-air terrace.

A simple philosophy behind the project, authored by George Livissianis, is a pop-up approach of re-use and re-adaptive design principles. If the elements have integrity they are preserved, if they can be stripped back to raw they are stripped and if they aren’t suitable, they’re wrapped in a Christo inspired installation process. The spaces are punctuated with artistic highlights by friend and ‘artist in residence’, Beni and sculptor / installation artist, Tracey Deep.
