Project review: The Continental, located in the seaside town of Sorrento on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula, is well-known as an iconic historical venue, providing timeless experiences for holidaymakers since 1875. A recent multi-million-dollar makeover has transformed ‘The Conti’ into three sections, spanning five buildings across six levels. The heritage-listed hotel now boasts the luxury 108-room InterContinental, 13 dining and drinking spaces, and a wellness center, all while retaining its heritage character. Metro Steel Windows played a role in the new direction of this ambitious project through the replacement of existing heritage windows and internal steel-framed doors and entryways.

Audrey’s, named after Scott Pickett’s grandma, offers guests an authentic and elegant dining experience. Our black steel-framed windows frame magnificent ocean views, allowing diners to immerse themselves in the breathtaking scenery. Manufactured using our W40 profile, a combination of fixed and operable awning windows captures the essence of the building’s historical architecture both from the interior and exterior, while providing an abundance of natural light and a delightful sea breeze. The interior boasts original locally quarried limestone walls that complement our arched steel-framed doors.

Hidden beneath The Continental, you will find ‘Barlow,’ a late-night cocktail bar. Take a turn and follow the lights to where a stunning entry welcomes you. Our black steel-framed double doors, with clear glazing, lure you further into a night of glitz and glamour. Manufactured using our W40 profile, the slim and sophisticated profile sets the scene for this late-night speakeasy bar.

Metro Steel Windows aims to bring an evergreen design aesthetic to projects, helping buildings and spaces stand the test of time. Our steel windows honor the architecture of the past while providing contemporary elegance.
