By opening up the brand new design hotel QT Sydney, the painstaking renovation of two of the most important historical buildings in Sydney has finally seen its peak.
The two aforementioned buildings, the iconic Gowings Building department store and the State Theatre, were officially opened back in 1929. Whilst the State Theatre was fully built after Art Déco and Venetian principles, the Gowings store used to look like a Gothic-styled Palazzo.
They have now been restored according to their previous architectural styles, even with gargoyles – these statues haven’t been seen on the buildings since a very long time ago.
The most interesting side of this whole renovation project is the fact that their previous designs have been combined with modern styling principles.
Comprising a total of 200 superbly appointed guest suites, this hotel has plenty of space to accommodate all sorts of guests, from all over the world, especially lovers of architecture and art itself. Besides, there’s plenty of comfortable stuff in all of the rooms, alongside all sorts of amenities, like high-speed internet, walk-in showers, massive soaking tubs in many of the suites and luxurious bedding.
