Australia: Sydney’s Paramount House now has a 29-room boutique hotel on the upper floors.

The heritage-listed building - formerly the Australian HQ of Paramount Picture Studios - was bought by property investor Ping Jin Ng who renovated it with the help of architects Fox Johnston. For this new phase, Melbourne-based architecture firm Breathe was tasked with overseeing the four-year hotel project.

A two-storey extension was added to connect Paramount House with the previously vacant building next door - formerly a film storage warehouse for Paramount Picture Studios. The two buildings are joined by a Herringbone-patterned copper-clad screen, which wraps around the roof to create a façade. The hotel's rooms are located within the upper floors of the newly connected buildings, with the lobby based on the ground floor.

"The hotel rooms have been designed with Surry Hills and Sydney references; whether it be a breakout outdoor space, a reminder of past architecture in the design, or local products," said Paramount House Hotel co-owner Mark Dundon.

The hotel joins The Office Space co-working space, The Locals Market initiative, Paramount Coffee Project, and the Golden Age Cinema inside Paramount house.
