Swissotel Sydney has just completed an extensive redesign for a new look, as well as a complete refurbishment of 355 guestrooms.

The new look of the hotel is the work of Australian interior architecture and design firm CHADA, and features Swiss-inspired principles of simplicity and attention to detail.

The designers placed particular emphasis on the hotel’s extensive collection of artwork, with pieces forming visual accents throughout the property. These design cues have been incorporated into the guestrooms and suites.

The guestrooms are quite different from anything else you will find in Sydney. We were not restricted on the use of high-quality materials on every wall. It’s like walking into a beautiful, bespoke apartment – very spoiling,” said Juliet Ashworth, partner and creative director at CHADA.

Swissotel Sydney’s signature restaurant, JPB, also underwent a transformation and is now under the direction of executive chef Thomas Heinrich.

JPB offers a range of locally inspired and seasonally sourced dishes. Heinrich has developed a menu that mixes Australia’s native products with more traditional flavours.

“We are following the seasons and cooking what tastes best at various moments. We are trying not to mask the tastes of mother nature but to enhance what she gives us,” said Heinrich. “With the menus we are sourcing ingredients of the finest quality.”
