After four years in the making, Paramount House Hotel has recently opened its doors for business. Its copper-clad roof shines on Commonwealth Street in Sydney‘s Surry Hills, and signals the completion of a long-running restoration and reformation of what was once the former warehouse and offices of Paramount Picture Studios.

Designed by Melbourne-based Breathe Architecture, the hotel‘s 29 rooms and atrium-style lobby blend heritage with new. Restored ceilings, windows and old brick walls are complemented by fresh timber floors and terrazzo-tiled bathrooms.

Each room has its own sense of personality and design details, but all are dressed with French linen sheets, Aesop amenities, Seljak wool blankets and artwork curated by local gallery China Heights. Indoor and outdoor plants in all rooms speak to the hotel’s appreciation for detail and tactile experiences.

Guests can choose from Everyday or Sunny rooms, as well as Lofts and two spacious Mack Daddy suites. Lofts feature floor to ceiling glass windows, and beds hovering above lounges via a mezzanine level.

Japanese-style timber baths feature in a selection of rooms. Wake up to a thermos of single origin filter coffee hanging on your door as part of Paramount Coffee Project’s breakfast and lunch room service.

Still to come in the Paramount House building is Ester’s sister restaurant Poly which will provide dinner room service to guests from June, and Paramount Recreation Club and Kiosk which open on the roof of the building this month.
