Tzannes designs distinctive new hotel for inner city Sydney

TZANNES has won a Design Excellence competition run by the Cienna Group to design a new 12 storey, 122 room hotel on a corner site in one of Sydney’s most exciting and rapidly evolving inner city suburbs, Surry Hills.

The Tzannes proposal won over entries from FJMT and COAP. The jury, comprising Ken Maher (Jury Chair), Peter Hing, Rachel Neeson and Maryam Gusheh, said the Tzannes design was ‘a compelling response to its site and brief, and would significantly lift the standard and amenity of hotel accommodation in the inner city.’

Tzannes’ design for the new Cambridge Hotel delivers a distinctive new upmarket hotel on a corner site adjacent to two existing hotels, also owned by the Ciena Group. It will be a distinctive, high quality new hotel appealing to a new target market, at the same time providing improved efficiency through shared back of house and services with the existing hotel.

The new hotel draws its identity from the distinct landscape quality of the site and its relationship to large green spaces in the context of Surry Hills. This new landscaped character enhances the identity of the hotel as well as the amenity of the public domain and the interior of the hotel.
