Sydney’s century old wharf in Woolloomooloo is now home to the latest Ovolo hotel designed by international practice HASSELL

HASSELL senior associate Matthew Sheargold says the newly launched Ovolo Woollomooloo brings the best of modern design to the stunning harbourside location. "With the Ovolo guest at the heart of the design process, Ovolo Woolloomooloo embodies everything the brand stands for – young, energetic, cheeky, accessible and effortless," Matthew said. "This is evident at every touchpoint, from the employees' uniforms through to the most pervasive design decisions.”

One of the biggest challenges for the designers was transforming an uninviting wind tunnel along the spine of the existing hotel. To do this, the space was separated into smaller zones and pavilions were inserted to create a more intimate environment that is more in line with the brand’s ethos. Pockets of sunlight and tree-filled spaces within the pavilions encourage guests to use them for a variety of reasons.

In the guest rooms, locally commissioned art work has been used throughout, with custom-designed lighting adding to the bespoke feel of the interiors. Colour and patterns are thoughtfully used in each room to create an eclectic environment in which guests can relax.
