Luxury hotel group COMO Hotels and Resorts will unveil its first Australian property in October 2015

The Treasury,  located in Perth, Western Australia,  has been designed by architect Kerry Hill in the city’s new artisanal precinct, Cathedral Square Development. The revamped heritage site contains a group of buildings that have been integral to the life of the city for the past 140 years. Serving as town hall, post office, land titles office, and treasury, they had sat unused for 20 years before the careful restoration process began in 2012. 95 per cent of the original heritage building has been meticulously returned to its 19th-century origins, featuring re-installed dormer windows, rooftop copper trimmings and a stripped facade showing off the original render.

Comprising of 48 guestrooms, the hotel will pair the contemporary style of the architect with the understated elegance that COMO Hotels and Resorts are know for in their properties throughout the world. Custom-made fittings will sit next to bespoke European furniture, and over-sized windows will ensure rooms are flooded with natural light. Freestanding bath tubs by German company Kaldewei will be featured along with Travertine stone tiles and heated floors.

A fine-dining restaurant on the rooftop will showcase sweeping views of the Swan River with a menu that highlights the best in West Australian produce. A swimming pool, lounge bar and a COMO Shambhala Urban Escape will also be included in the property. The venture has been developed in conjunction with FJM properties and, upon opening, the hotel will serve as a modern new centre for the city of Perth.
