A peek into the past

A lot has happened at our humble Pyrmont address over the past 90 years.

During the 1930s, when Pyrmont’s sandstone quarries flourished, the Colonial Sugar Refining Company (CSR) refinery was a towering, billowing presence on the peninsula, and sugar was transported around the wharves by horse and cart… our little Art Deco-style building rose up as a cereal storage building.

Over time, various enterprises called it home: the Australian Fishing Museum, the National Film and Sound Archive of Australia, and perhaps most famously, Australian small home appliance brand Breville, the creators of the illustrious sandwich press.

In transforming the building into a hotel, we have kept the original bricks, features and framework, introducing a contemporary design which celebrates the past while bringing in botanicals from the local area into the interiors and the polish of floor-to-ceiling windows in the street-level lobby. Two new storeys on top complete its story. Well, this latest chapter anyway…
