BAR Studio has designed the interiors for the latest establishment from Capella Hotels in Sydney.

The city's heritage-listed Department of Education building was transformed into the 192-room hotel by architecture firm Make.

Make aimed to restore the grandeur of the original 1912 structure, while BAR Studio created luxurious, contemporary interiors using natural materials and a neutral palette.

The 11-story hotel also showcases Australian art pieces and references the building's heritage through framed forms.

This project has been shortlisted in the hotel and short stay interior category of Dezeen Awards 2023.
