Designed on a tight inner city site, the 4 star Portal Hotel is 81 rooms over seven storeys, using a modular floor plate, with retail and restaurant tenancy at ground level addressing the street.
Cottee Parker designed to brief, and delivered a practical high quality hotel with compact rooms, cost effective modular furniture and fittings economically sourced from overseas.
The building employs sub-tropical design principles by incorporating large roof overhangs, screening balconies with western orientation, and carefully considering the palette of materials.
Cottee Parker Architects negotiated a key outcome for the client in a significant relaxation of parking requirements.
Despite a tight design phase timeframe the project ran smoothly and profitably due to a well founded relationship with the builder. Numerous inquiries and offers to buy the finished product confirmed that the design and operating costs of this building are highly efficient.
