The Savoy Hotel Collaboration - Perth, Western Australia

Are you interested in seeing the beautiful Savoy Hotel, in the Hay Street Mall - Perth turned into a thriving hub of creatives and young entrepreneurs? I guess this might mean us!

 

The Savoy Hotel was one of the largest hotels built in Perth in the period up to 1914. Constructed towards the end of the boom period, few buildings rivalled its size for many years. It was not until the late 1950s and early 1960s, with the impending hosting of the Empire and Commonwealth Games, that larger hotels were being constructed, benefiting from the new technologies of the day. Savoy Hotel therefore remains important as a rare example of a large and opulent hotel of the boom era in Western Australia.

The vacant upper floors are substantially intact and much of the original layout and finishes could be restored. A project close to our hearts as it was designed by Bridget (Talbot Hobbs) Khursheed's great grandfather architect Joseph John Talbot Hobbs.
