QT Sydney Opens Shop

Posted on: 31 August 2012

Sydney’s new and hip boutique design hotel, QT Sydney has recaptured the 1930’s with a nod to Australia’s first multi-destination shopping centre, the State Shopping Block.

Built in 1929, the shopping centre has long disappeared, but in its place QT Sydney design team have cleverly reinstated and restored features and outlines of some of the bygone shop fronts and original display cabinets.

Preserving the past, QT Sydney has replicated the once decorative brass lined shop windows from remnants and historic photographic records – they stand as the welcoming frontage to SpaQ.

The entrance of the hotel houses four ornate brass display cabinets, two of which are original and have been restored to their former glory. An additional two have been reproduced to emulate the fine craftsmanship of these. These sit aligned where the antique cabinets once showcase wares of retailers.

Now revitalised, the cabinets display quirky artefacts and objet d’art to give a distinct glimpse and vision of all that is QT Sydney upon entry.

About QT Sydney

The culmination of some hefty restoration work, the historic Gowings and State Theatre buildings in Sydney’s CBD have been artfully revamped to see the introduction of Sydney’s newest hip designer hotel, QT Sydney.

An eagerly awaited development, with the gothic façades and features of the buildings carefully returned to their former glory, whilst inside the hotel possess cutting edge art and design featuring LED digital art, bespoke furniture and a strong use of bold colours makes clever interior design central to the hotel experience. And you can’t beat the location – it couldn’t be more in the heart of the city of it tried. The bowler hat lights are a favourite cheeky touch, but there’s a huge focus on art and design here. QT isn’t just about a place to lay your head.

QT Sydney is scheduled to open in September this year and is the only Sydney hotel to be a member of the exclusive Design Hotels.
