The exterior is clad in a ‘brittle skin’ inspired by our waterfront shed heritage and etched in form on the façade of the hotel. To the east the timber matrix is opened to the Viaduct Harbour via large three storey boat scale apertures, to the North, it is a mirror fitted in a tattoo to recall the profile of the sheds that once occupied our wharves.
