Located at 27 O’Connell St Sydney, the Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel is a world-class venue in a world class location. The building’s origins date back to the 1850’s when it was home to newspaper moguls John Fairfax & Sons publishers, and today holds significant historic value in the Sydney landscape.
INTREC’s upgrade to the ballroom and function centre proved to be a challenging project in an occupied space, particularly as the venue can accommodate over a 1,000 high paying guests at any one time. Restricted by a limited budget INTREC successfully managed to integrate innovation, style and class within the project through a Bates Smart design over a seven-week period.
The program was dominated by a significant joinery and flooring package, though the real challenge was to integrate a very complex lighting system into an already shaped space.
Extensive use of bronze, ornate fabrics and an elaborate cornice detail dictated the theme, with the finished product creating a sense of sophistication and grace in a truly welcoming environment.
